    This is the best shot of yours I have seenbut I still flipped it to follow the dark block rule mentioned earlier tonight and I don';t know how you got the reflection but I simply copied the top bit, expanded its height but not the width and then softened the reflection.

    I find it interesting that the princple droplet is close to the top left third and with a better reflection there is a lovely cyclical sweep of the leaf and its reflection creating a large bubble for the shiney buibble to sit on.

    Phil, noting of great import. I am a newbie trying to learn the art. This photo started off as a simple rode leaf with water droplets. I got a little carried away. PN is fast becoming one of my mentors.

    Paul, this is a much better image and has the pop/interest element I mentioned as missing from previous submissions.
    There is a clear point of focus to draw the eye too.

    I think jkucnz' flip works too. Maybe it's because we are drawn into the image left to right. I
    i.e. the way we read.

    Like Phil I'm not quite clear about the title.

    James.

    hi James, the original was a shot of water drops on a red rose leaf. By the time i had finished playing it looked like a see through igloo on a cliff. hence from nature to architecture.
