Noticed the Virginia Creeper in the back garden was beginning to turn colour, so thought a close-up would work OK. Not sure about the addition of the droplets, see what you think...

Beautiful Autumn colour Dave.You have caught the leaf texture well and its nicely composed. I am not a 'droplet' fan but it is subjective.

I like the droplets, but they could do with a spot of spherize to make them a little more realistic. And maybe some liquify too, to make them a little less similar. other than that, looks fine.
