Beautiful droplets on this rose, Kevin, glittering against such dark BG. I like the lighting especially that hitting the stem!
A sharp macro and a good placement of the flower in the center.
Very neat macro.
My best regards,
I like your soft capture of this flowers petals,laden with waterdrops,that appear as shining diamonds,they match your Title very well.I like your exposure,I guess it would have been easy to OE this type of subject,which of course you have not.
I hope you don't mind that I did a WS, not as a critique,but more to compare if the waterdrops could look even more like diamonds glistening,if the flower was just a tad more white.
What a wonderful closeup capture from a wet rose with such pearls-like droplets resting on its tender petals, Kevin!
Great focus and perfect contrast with the darker blurry BG.
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and colors are natural.
The light and exposure are very well handled, avoiding any possible OE which is tricky while capturing white roses but you managed it very well.
