Interesting, but too many unsharp areas...

I like how unusual this composition this is. Would be cool to see an enlarged study of the droplets and those reflections, too, perhaps!

I like where this is going. I would have liked the main focus to be where the blades meet, put that in the lower right corner and have it be tack sharp with the out of focus lines and drops leading to it. I like the colors and exposure and you did nail the focus for what I assume you were going for.

I agree That way the branch would have been diagonally and the image would be more shocking. Anyway it is a great shot.

As others have said I like the second as well. I only find the little stick (I assume it is a stick) in the foreground distracting. Otherwise a wonderful image.

I agree with everyone else - this second image is better. The water droplets are beautifully sharp and so very clear. The large tear-shaped drop in the centre adds an extra dynamic: it looks as if it is about to make a run for it!

The "distracting" blade with its single water droplet could almost stand by itself as a separate image - it almost looks like the blade of grass is "holding" the water droplet. Is that the photographer's shape caught in this droplet?


It is fascinating how water tension can cause most small water droplets to form almost perfect spheres, and also to allow them to "cling".
