This is actually quite a nice image. I love the sharpness on the droplet itself. THere is a bot of distraction up a bit from the drop on the underside of the leaf. Can you eliminate that? It would clean up the shot a smidge.

Great job!

Maybe this crop would be better?

Actually I liked the original crop. The softness of it and tonal gradations are great against the sharp droplet. It is the bright area just on the edge of the newly cropped image, at the top of the frame, that I am suggesting you retouch. It pulls the eye away from the droplet.

Wow, EM, this is the best of your "drop series" thus far, in my view. A remarkable photo.

This last retouch is much better.

Great shot!
