    My opinion is:
    • I think a composition that excluded more of the background and concentrated attention on the dew drops on the leaf would be stronger.
    • The ere is a flare in the top left hand corner that is, I think, quite distracting
    • I do not favour watermarks/security marks on images and your one is quite obtrusive. Again, it draws attention away from the subject.
    • If we force ourself to ignore these distractions, then I think it is a good image.

    Additionally...I find that hanging droplets produce a stronger image.

    Thanks a lot about your valuable review. I will keep everything in mind for my next water drop photoshoot.
