I am a volunteer critique-writer with :iconthesp0t:

What a stunning and eye-catching work! I really love this! The fact that it's monochrome just adds to the effect, and the pure white of the little fronds behind the droplets sets off the darker droplets so well. I love the darkest parts of the droplets very much, they add a depth and mystery that keeps me looking and interested in that part of the photo - and I'm guessing that this is your intention as they are the focal part of the photo.

I also love that spark of white at the lowest part of each droplet which adds life and a visual sparkle so well.

Your focus is absolutely perfect and even when my eyes come to the bottom of the photo, the tiny crisply focussed stems bring me back up to the droplets again.

A truly gorgeous work with perfect composition. I have nothing negative to say about it at all.
What do you think?

This is amazing! I agree with the critique, but I just want to add that it is so interesting (in a really good way) that you chose dandelion seeds as a subject to zoom in on.

Man1 How do those little dandelion seeds hold a whole drop of water like that? Do you put them there somehow or does that just happen by nature? Either way I love it! : D
