The water droplets add to the visual appeal of your image of the rose by adding a textural component... one feels as if they could reach right into the image and feel the wet soft rose petals. The contrast between the pink rose and the surrounding greenery serves to make the rose stand out strongly in the picture.

Hi Chris, nice and sharp, good exposure, the water droplets really make it for me.
I might have either cropped away the highlight area at top right or cloned it out as I find it a bit distracting to my eye. ..just a thought.
Best wishes

Lovely macro, "dripping" with super details and saturation. Agree with Rob about the highlight area. Might want to try a soft vignette to soften those highlights.

I don't think the placement of the highlight allows enough for a crop - but you could burn it in just enough that it doesn't attract attention.
Anyway, in terms of sharpness, exposure and colour it's spot-on.
