Orchids drops by Cookiephotos

Critique from the Extreme-Macro Group:

I like the refraction in the drops, and I like the way the grass is crossing the frame. Excellent placement of the area of acceptable focus!

Although I like the refraction in the drops, I don't like where the drops are positioned in the frame. The largest drop is too close to the edge of the frame and it leads the eye out of the photo. The composition would have been a lot better if the grass (guessing at it since I can't see it) started in the lower left area of the frame and extended to the upper right with the largest dew drop in the rule of thirds hot spot in that corner. Being able to see some of the detail in the grass would also make the image better.

It's tough to shoot a dew drop refraction because, like water splash photos, it's a very common subject. Even minor mistakes in composition will stand out...
