Thanks for the nice comment.

The light was amazingly clear and the FA*300mm is an amazingly sharp lens able to pickup nicely the reflections through the drops.

nice grain through the background creating some nice texture - is this a fairly tight crop ?

The background is the backyard. With a retaining wall and some plants in front of and at the top of the retaining wall, itslef made of railway sleepers. Of course we are in a subtropical climate and the background is quite rich.
Thank you for the coment.

I would use a lens with more depth of field for this and a higher aperture to have more of it in focus. The *300 doesn't really seem to be the lens for the job except it does render a beautiful creamy background, but the 35 macro would do it too. The reflections in the raindrops are great!
