Stunning! The blue tone, the pinsharp return of the leave's textures together with the waterdrops... Absolutely gorgeous! I just wonder about the illumination, did you use a flash here? The shadows are quite harsh namely...
My 6 out of 5 for your work, congrats!

Deep blue tones going so perfectly with the velvetly soft texture of the leaves. And the water drops add the magic...Just a stunning beauty!

Me I find it extraordinary, the color is superb and especially the camera angle, it is little to be the prettiest photograph of flower.

Les Roses bleues ça existe, mais celle-ci est t'elle vraiment bleue ? Mystère !
Il est possible qu'elle a été eclairée avec un spot bleu ou bien vous avez modifié la couleur.
Qu'importe ! L'essentiel, c'est que le travail est réussi l'image est bien nette et elle dégage une ambiance mystèrieuse.

I'm not the technical kind of person, so i cannot tell you how perfectly great this shot was taken. I thought this kind of pictures only existed in Photoshop ;-) Real nice to see someone actually can get this on camera!

excellent macro the violet/blue center of the rose is marvelous displacement of light. And the droplets reflections are great. one of the better macros I've seen!
Josh69 (1431) 2004-02-26 7:22
Excellent and an amazing amount of detail. The water drops on the flower are very good.
cloverstar (0) 2004-03-13 7:29
I too submitted a 'Blue Rose', but this is so much better than my attempt. Perhaps you could share what lighting conditions you had, as I'd like to learn.
Great depth of field, good focus and the reflections in the water droplets are marvelous. Good work, indeed.
