The numerous water droplets add to the textural feel of the rose... there is the illusion of the rose wearing a coat of water. The contrast between the rose and the darkened nature of the background serve to make the flower stand out in the image.

The water droplets add good texture to the rose. How many compositions did you get
out of it? If you shot it at an angle either the front or back petals would likely be soft
which is fine. I like to move photos around on my iPad to see what else might be
available such as abstracts. If you want to play with it try this: crop just to the right of
the center area and just above the center on the rear flower. Now itís down to petals
and water drops in a more abstract form.

I do like the water droplets on this lovely wild rose. With your macro lens the center of the flower could be sharper. Other than that it's still nice as it is.;-)

On my iPad the center is very sharp.
