Taken in my backyard after some rain - what caught my eye was the textures in the leaf.

Cheers.

The droplets look great in black and white, but the whole leaf doesn't look pretty to any extent. Do you have a color version handy?

Very cool natural abstract. The droplets and detail are excellent

No colour version processed - but what do you mean by pretty? do you think it is too messy?

Very nice! If you are aiming for the abstract, might I suggest different/tighter cropping that makes the result less a "closeup of a leaf" and more an "interesting collection of textures"?

Thanks - I will have a play around with some different crops - I am starting to think that maybe a square crop might work well.
