Its an attractive shot Leandra. I think actually that it might look even better if only that lovely top petal, with the drop was in the frame on its own. Its the focal point of the image, and the lower out of focus leaf can draw the eye away from the main subject.

Theres no exif data loaded with your shot, - so I assume you used a high ISO, and theres a small amount of noise in the background green, looks like tiny dotes. Its not too bad, but its worthwhile reducing it if you can in post processing, or by using a dedicated noise reduction software.

Ive loaded a mod with the top petal only, reduced noise, and added a simple frame. Hope you like it.

Ahh, yes, I see what you mean about having the bottom leaf take the eye away from the main subject... the mod is really quite nice.

Thanks for the input!

The light is perfect to enhance those water droplets, Leandra, and your background is nice and clean, but I agree that the subject needs and deserves to be completely isolated, with no other distractions.

Very nicely done with a compact - so sharp. A lot with expensive DSLR's could learn from this. Slight top and bottom crop, or a landscape in the first place - but very well done.
