Lovely image-a very fresh, green, spring atmosphere about it! But shouldn't you have called it 'cobweb in the rain'?!! I see no flowers!! But that's not a problem, great image!

I agree with Ruby, but you do have a nice cobweb with droplets on it. This is never going to be an easy shot to get just right. The first thing to look for is a darker background so that the droplets stand out. Look around for the darkest area behind the web, and one that is not too fussy. It doesn't matter if the web itself isn't showing well, but the patterns of the droplets need to look like jewels, and good light is also necessary to get them to shimmer. The other problem is that they are so delicate, they move with the slightest breeze, so a fast shutter speed is required, unless you use a tripod. This is a very delicate image and, with a little boost in editing, you could improve upon making the web stand out a bit better from the background.
