Hello TL friends!
Only an old picture from my gallery of a pink rose.
The drops are the result of my water spray.

In my WS you can see the same shot, but a differet crop and frame.

I hope you like it!

Pare inghetat.
Tare faine amandoua.
Cred ca imi place mai mult ala din WS datorita contrastului cu negru.


Hello Lili,

The tears are pronounced and reflective, like tiny jewels on a satin dress.
For me, the posted image is less dramatic than the w/s; I prefer the black border which gives a much greater contrast, more clearly defining the rose.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hola Lili
Preciosa imagen de esta rosas adornada con multitud de perlas cristalinas formadas por gotitas de agua , una composicion muy romantica y muy bien realizada , gracias por compartir esta maravillosa foto

Buen trabajo
un saludo

Hello Liliana! Amazing macro. Perfect capture and exposure. Ideal contrast and sharpness. Fantastic effect. Well done!

Hello Liliana,
Thats a very nice looking postcard. I like this one morer than the WS. Near perfect but you could try to remove the colour noise in the corners on the right side of the frame.
Have a nice day,

wonderful Liliana,

well done,

great color !

Hello my friend,

Lovely macro shot.
The water drops are great bonus to your composition.
Excellent focus, sharpness, light and wonderful colors tones.
Excellent framing, too.
I like this one more than that in workshop.

Warm greetings and best wishes,

Hallo Lili,

Great title though your picture is self-explainatory!

Wonderful sharpness, nice POV and great framing. I like the picture in your WS too. The clarity on the drops is amazingly beautiful. A great work!

Schöne Grüße aus Kassel

Hello, Lili -
Unbelievable effect from the sharp, crystalline water droplets on the delicate petals. The incredible sharpness really makes this special. Gorgeous tones and light - the drops capture the light so perfectly. Very nicely done.

Detaliile sunt super faine, iar picurii de apa adauga un efect foarte fain.
Ce sa mai, un POV foarte bun. Imi place aceasta captura.

Salutare Lili,
splendida compozitie.
Uluitoare aceste picaturi de apa.
As fi si eu tentat sa-i dau dreptate lui Vlad. Parca varianta pe negru este mai ... buna ca si contrast.
O zi minunata,

Bom dia Liliana,

Explêndida macro, rica em belas cores, excelentes detalhes das pétalas da rosa e magníficas gotas, talvez de orvalho.
Nitidez também excelente, assim como a luminosidade.
Muito bem feita, emoldurada e apresentada.
Parabéns e um grande abraço,

Hi Lili,

The water droplets from your spray created a beautiful and artistic composition. The macro of the rose stands on its own merit, but the water is the most significant element. Beautiful work.

Warm regards,

Hey Lili,
Excelent capture with great PP work ! Nice rain drop effect, I really like the light reflected from them.
TFS and have a great day,

Hi Liliana,

dear Liliana,
delicate light pink color of this rose makes water drops turn to precious pearls,
not on the land but in the deep ocean, the sea rose has opening with numerous clear pearls, in my feeling,
thank you for your wonderful shot,

Hello Lili , the dominant pink is splendid throughout, the frame makes the rose look even better by enhancement and the drops add a touch of freshness to the flower , excellent definition and clarity is first class , lovely take my friend,
my compliments ,

Frumos experiment Lili. Imi place putin mai mult cea din WS.
Duminica placuta

Hello Liliana,

Good capture. I find this photo rather sad. TFS.


Hi, Lili.A very good photograph indeed with a good point of view, depth of field and soft lighting. I congratulate you on a excellent depiction of the droplets.. Your choice of framing also goes along with the subject. The composition and the colors are very good.

Bonjour Liliana,
C'est magnifique toutes ces goutes sur la rose qui est d'une grande beauté.
La netteté est fantastique.
Merci du partage.

Hello Liliana!
Wonderful capture!Fantastic macro!
Perfect colours,contrast and details!
Nice effects!Well presented!
TFS Kostas

Hi Liliana
Hope you are doing well
Great macro of water droplets on this beautiful pink rose
The sharpness and contrast are nice as well as natural colors
If you've got a tripod, possible to bring into play closer aperture and capture more drops in clearance
Best wishes, Alireza

Hi Lili,

Wonderful close up. nice colours, POV and very sharp.
Very weel presented although I will agree with Bev that would look better with the black border (of course my personal opinion).

Woooow, Lili, I missed this fantastic rose - so romantic and the colours are wonderful.
The light is perfect and make the drops glittering like diamonds.
I hope you start posting again, I miss you.
Thanks and enjoy the day

intéressante composition avec des gouttes sur les pétales!
bonne réalisation.


Mind-blowing detail and sharpness, with exquisite use of shallow Dof to create this artistic masterpiece. The pale pink and muted lighting works well here- great shot!




The result of drops with the water spray is truly beautiful.
The framework agree very well with the rose, it's smooth and soft, romantic realization.
I notice a perfect focus and sharpness here, I also enjoy the elegant presentation.
