As an owner of that Sigma lens I am impressed. I never thought about a photo like that, so this is quite original in my eyes. The focus on the drop is spot on, I guess that was captured using the max aperture of the lens at the macro setting between 200 and 300mm.
I've got the feeling the background was a little bit enhanced there, or it can be just some strange bokeh that appears between the leaf with the drop and the one on the left.
I like the blue background that's fading to a light tone of purple in the left top corner. It gives the picture a more dreamy appeal, the look of the viewer is immediately drawn to the reflection to the drop of water and it's interesting reflection.
Overal it's an impressive picture with nice detail and an interesting idea behind it, nice Work! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="" title=" (Smile)" />
So I thought I´d leave some writing here, even if I don´t know much about macro<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt="" title=" (Smile)" /> I´ll stick to english instead of norwegian, so that the rest of dA can understand it<img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/w/w…" width="15" height="15" alt="" title=" (Wink)" />
The first thing that hits me with this picture is the calm and soothing colours and softness of it all. The gradient running through the background is even and fits the flower well.
The DOF is well used and the drop really stands out, also because of the colours in it.
Composition is good, positioning the weight of the flower on the top and letting the drop fall to the lower third of the picture makes good lines for the eye to follow. The composition also allows you to look at the picture for a longer time and find new things about it as you go.
Great work Joakim!
