    prefer #1

    btw your sensor needs cleaning
    from #1 bottom left, is that a dust speck?

    more dof would be good, at least get one drop in full focus

    both are good imo. no clutter and interesting, leaves you guessing for a while what it might be.

    Many are culled, few are chosen

    Thank you ortega, namska & trigger happy for comment.

    Ortega, nice to hear your comment again.
    Has been out from club snap for almost 4 months.

    You are right. You spot the problem with my lens. I dont even notice it.
    Blur probably cause by handshake. Kind of tiring after focusing for awhile.
    I also dont dare to breathe, scare all the dew will drop.
    How I wish I have macro lens. Cheers

    a tripod would have helped with handshake

    #1's my choice. Great effect with the mono. Like the droplets of water shot this way - very creative.

    Agreed with the rest.
    #01 takes the cake. The rain drops look like little diamonds on a tiara.
    Err.... what's the hair like thingy just behind the blade of grass?

    Thanks trigger happy for advise.
    Tripod not the most preferably equipment when I go shooting.
    I find it troublesome. But sometimes, in this instance it will be useful.

    Thanks Darnikon and Lion King for compliments.
    I suppose this is a beauty of nature.
    Until now I still not able to figure out how the dew can position itself nicely in this way.
    I suppose the hair from the grass help to hold the dew.

    Lion King, I think that hairy thing you mention is from the grass itself.
