Beautiful Steve! In my opinion, this color of Rose is the best to photograph of all. Red's are the most difficult! LOVE the water drops and the nice tight crop!

A nice capture of this wet rose! I like the low POV and the crystal clear droplets hanging on the pale pink petals of this tender flower!
Impeccable sharpness and perfect light.
I congratulate you for the philosophic thought in your notes! Well done.
My best regards,

These fresh droplets get a 3-D appearance when I look at this picture for couple of seconds in a stretch, Steve ;O))
Good focus and well kept contrasts within the image.
The colors of the rose are beautifully caught, and as Linda mentioned, this color combination is indeed the best one to shoot. The exposure and light are very well handled.
A piece of artwork!

Love the repetition of the water droplets and the 1/2 circle composition. Good use of selective focus with a nice blurred bg and the dark green adds graphism to the well lit fg rose. Have a great weekend!

Having worked in a treatment centre I can concur with your philosophy. Some people have only experienced the thorns of other people and so their initial response is thorny. It often takes perseverance to encourage the rose to become visible in others.
A beautiful rose enhanced by your creative use of light.Nice posting.

Hi Steve, I like the water beads covering the petals, especially that one darker one right in the middle of that second row of petals.It sure stands out.Fiona

Spettacolare incisione della lente sull'immagine.
Un macro che evidenzia una "forma" di rugiada.
L'acqua da sempre ha valorizzato l'immagine .
I fotografi famosi prima della guerra l'adoravano.

Hello Steve :)
The very beautiful, elegant rose which on the dark background presents herself magnificently.
The drops of water on her petals look how diamonds.
The showy composition showed perfectly and executed in beautiful
colours and light, I like him very much!
With best wishes.
