Hello Peter.
The image is a little small to be able to critique well, you can load up to 600pxl (longest side) images which would make life easier!

From what I can see you have tried to isolate some raindrops on the leaves with a narrow depth of field, however it has not quite worked as there are two leaves with in-focus drops on. For an image of this kind to work you would need to compose the shot so that just a single leaf was in the image, and preferably isolate the raindrops more effectively. For instance, the bright out-of-focus raindrop in the foreground distracts the eye from the in-focus ones behind it. Also, crop out the right-hand leaf, preferably by recomposing in camera, but alternatively in post processing.
Without camera/lens details its hard to be more specific.
