John Maloney is this week's runner-up for his photo of raindrops on flowers at the Clara Barton house in Glen Echo, Maryland. It was shot at 1/160 second using a Sony A300 with a Sigma 17-70 macro lens. Here is a critique by Jerry Jackson, The Baltimore Sun's senior picture editor: "Overcast skies after a rainstorm offer a great opportunity to capture vibrant flower photos as John did in this photo. The image is well composed and the yellow of the pistil and stamen really pop against the purple petals."
