Lovely! Beautiful colour and detail, and the tiny water droplets are like a thousand little jewels!

Terrific view with all those droplets-they really sparkle. Lovely detail- a wonderful cheery mood presented.

Fine composition, pretty drops, great stacked detail. Nice grouping, too.

Nice BC, contrasting golden yellow flowers, and composition, with highlights provided by the dew droplets. I wonder, though, whether the focus stacking diminished the highlighting effects of the droplets, as many of them seem kind of cloudy and generally dull-looking.

Thanks for your comments. I wondered about the same - some of the individual images had better looking droplets. stacking seems to diminish the contrast that the single frames produce. I often prefer taking images with as small an aperture as possible, but sometimes the distracting background discourages me to do so. So I often resort to stacking. A good insight though.
