[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The brief shower we had a few days ago afforded me the opportunity to photograph bedewed flowers. Taken from my garden, I isolated the red rose petals and focused on the water drops. There was no cropping here.

PP workflow included tweakings of contrast and exposure followed by USM then resizing.

Have a good day folks.

Hi Danilo,
Superb close-up, it renders the beauty of this bedewed rose.
The title is right!
Excellent exposure and focus. The pearly drops are amazingly rendered and the nuances of deep red, exquisite. I like your work here! Annie

Hello Danilo,

These petals are very well focused, it looks like a rose sugar on the cakes.
I notice a strong sharpness , I like this attractive color.
Artistic idea.
Well done

Oh my goodness!!!
This is master blaster shot where you share some minute details from the lips of red rose.
The sharpness and POV are well done and clarity is amazing. The colors are just sprouting out of the picture, I feel.
The natural frame works well for this shot too.
Great job!

best greetings,

Hi Danilo,
A very romantic presentation of these rose petals in such a wet-look ambient!
Great sharpness and fabulous crystal clear droplets reflecting this heavenly sparkle.
Very neat work with this shallow DOF.
Well done.

Bom dia Danilo,
sometimes there are pictures that give us great pleasure to contemplate and then re-review.
This is one of these: beautiful and well done.

Hi, Danilo. I do like the title and the idea behind it. It does look like sugar Crystals which are looking so pretty. The colors have become more saturated because of the wetness and the petals of the rose form a good abstract design. Congratulations for the good observation and creative work.
