I really love the concept of this piece. I think it's just really amazing what you've done.

The way you have the blurred image behind the seed and droplet really adds to the composition in a very positive way for me. Almost like an echoing thought of the voice that whispered to you an important message or secret. ^^ It has a nice way of displaying depth in this photograph as well.

It amazes me how that droplet can be supported by that seed (unless I'm seeing past something else, and it's manipulated. I don't believe it is, however, because of the deviation's category). None the less, manipulated or talentedly placed, it puts in a nice soft touch to this piece; almost another way to remind us that we need to cherish our home.

Over all, I really like this piece. It has a great message for all of us to keep in mind sometimes. :)

Very nice piece! I really like how you've blended things here.

The vision of the piece is quite inspired, showing that the world is made up of all the small features in it. As the previous critique said, I am amazed that the seed can support the droplet. But it also illustrates that large things are built from all the small things supporting them.

Technique: The photography focusing on the plant and background is OK, but it is the water drop containing the world that shows off the skill level to the fullest extent. Is it a mirror of the background or is that a PS effect? Either way is is stunning.

Impact: As I have said before the small containing/supporting the large is a very poignant effect giving great impact to this piece. It's key is the simplicity of the composition summing up all you need to see in one focal point and not cramping it or overstating it with details. Very Nice.

That reminds of that song.

You know, the one about the world....and singing about all the problems...and stuff.

Yes, I am talking about Blackened by Metallica.

your photography never ceases to amaze me... they're gorgeous!
I can't help but ask what kind of camera you use? I'm pretty sure you're using a macro lens but your photo quality is really good... c:

This picture is even better than your excellent yin yang picture. To see the one big world in a small drop is an marvelous idea.

There is no need to mention that you have mastered the technik for such photos
