Really like this picture myself. Want to know if this is objectively good.

I like the b/w treatment. it generally follows good compositional rules. the black post in the bokeh on the right is distracting to me and if it could have been composed avoiding that i think it would have been better. But definitely a good effort (the water drops are pretty cool as well)

I like the image. I like the detail of the curve of the fern and rain drop on the tip. And might have chosen to zoom in/macro in to 1 or 3 of those for the main subject though. I'm not sure it would work as well as your image but that is my thought.

There are part of the out of focus areas I find distracting. I also wonder if the image can be enhanced by boosting the contrast. The water droplets are a very nice touch.

I like the composition - not sure on the BW - like to see the color - overall though a fine shot.
