Is the noise too much or its good?? I have tried to highlight on the water droplets that's why I thought increasing the noise would help. Please do suggest any other advice

We really like this image. You have frozen the movement of the raindrops and captured both the falling drops and the splashing on the roof. Smile

The idea is good but you are a clear full stop or more over exposed on the roof. You could have kept these settings but at ISO400 for less exposure and better quality.

It is difficult to assess noise at this size, but it looks acceptable. I suspect your auto metering has over exposed due tomore than half the frame being very dark. Expose less, then brighten the shadows with the dodge tool.

I can certainly see the droplets and noise does not seem to be a problem (maybe one needs to load this into software to see it). As a picture however, I feel it is not something that I would keep had I made the exposure. Neither the roof nor the wall shows correct exposure and together I do not feel that the composition says sufficient.

I like the subject, Dibyajit, especially the large water droplets and the pattern of the ridged edge of the roof.
I find the little bit of background in the top right area distracting, and feel you have sufficient elements with just your roof and droplets.
I wonder if you considered using flash instead of such a high ISO?
I personally do not like the grain. I think it is adding spotting to the dark area of the image that is mingling with the water splashes and causing confusion. I'd like to see your droplets more defined, without the grain.
In my modification, I cropped the right and top, adjusted highlights and shadows, then selectively sharpened the individual droplets, which brightens them and makes them more prominent. I could only remove a small bit of the grain for fear of taking away the sharpness from the image. I also increased the saturation to bring out some colour.
Pamela.

@Pamela
Actually the problem was that when the rain was falling from the shed there was few bigger drops any many smaller one compare. My aim was to focus more on the larger ones . the focusing was not so correct as I couldn't concentrate due to heavy raining at that time..
