First of all, Merry Christmas!

Secondly, your picture is very good.
Maybe it could be saturated slightly more but that would be a matter of taste.

lovely capture of macro droplets in the rain.
I like taking them on cobwebs. you can find some pretty unique spider web patterns this way. I find them usually in grasses in my garden or over the park.
There is no right or wrong way.
Just have fun taking the photos and experiment with manual and aperture settings with Macro.
I have set to flowers instead of portrait or landscape . my own personal preference. It gives a softer focus.
I find I take quite a number of photos then pick my best one.

Great leaves with raindrops bokeh photo! This is even better than what I've did on my bokeh photos last year 2015, so great job for pulling this one off! Wink

Shallow depth of field!... This type of photography is well employed for many types of photography, however macro photography is the most common: You choose a wide aperture and create a blurry bokeh. You can also use this for outside portraiture. Get onto YouTube and search for videos on the subject; there are plenty of resources you can make use of.

This photograph is a well taken one; demonstrates the technique perfectly with an excellent bokeh, which means you have a good lens. However, I would have preferred slightly more detail in the texture of the central leaf. But, of course, this is a matter of taste.

Regards and Happy New Year!
