This is a striking image. The contrast of the clear water drop and the blurred background is an interesting one, while the black and white color scheme serves to elegantly emphasize this. I feel like this is pretty much the perfect picture.

That being said, there are a few things that might be interesting to play around with next time:
-It might be interesting to try and crop the photo to a rectangle, to make the composition feel more balanced.
-It might also be worth trying to slightly increase the size of the aperture, so that the leaf is slightly more in focus.
What do you think?

Does it work in author notes if you're not a premium member?
