    I like the 1st one for excellent details and nice colour. I wonder whether multiple small drops would be better!

    The second image is a style that I always find especially challenging to successfully make and I'm jealous of how well you made that happen. As my eye wanders through the very interesting parts of your image, my attention always eventually returns "home" to the long, vertical blade that has the largest water droplet on it. Very nicely done and it's a lot harder to do than most people might think!

    Hey Mike, thanks a ton for the feedback! i was really pleased with the result too. dealing with the wind was the biggest challenge... everything would go out of focus all the time hehe

    Lovely photos, I too love #2... I actually tried a few shots like these yesterday which did not turn out, and now I know what they should look like

    I prefer the first one, Jimmy. There is plenty for the mind to explore in the labyrinth above and below the main leaf, but that large drop keeps dragging the eye back. Well done.

    Jimmy, I also like the first one best...how much water can it hold? Maybe a little bit more?
