    The eye goes to the droplet but doesn't see much...

    Maybe run over the noisy background areas with a light blur brush.

    Would this accept a slight increase in highlight brightness? Probably have to reduce the effect on the droplet though.

    I like the drops, Brian, but I might try cloning out the tiny one to leave just the three along the middle vein. Does it need all the background - perhaps a 2:1 crop from the bottom upwards, to remove the top third of the image including the bright distracting bit just above the tip of the top leaf.

    Agree, but perhaps just above the bright bit Philip referred to and cloning it out

    I like the idea of a light blur brush and i will look into it. I did try a little more brightness but as you say it detracted from the droplets.

    I agree the little one could go but i have not got to the point where my touch up skills make it look natural. I went for the layered back ground to really highlight the droplets but it could work with less.

    just gave the cropping idea a try and it certainly changes the photo. But to me it gives it a cramped feeling.
