4 minutes to spare! The sun must set late in Bryan Texas ;-) Greetings from the Critique Club.

This is a well exicuited shot, and fits well within the challenge. As you have left almost no information on how the shot was taken or post processed, most of my comments will be on personal taste alone.

Like fifield, i am not a big fan of the left across the top of the frame - at this DOF. I say at this DOF because i think i would have prefered the image more if there was either an even shallowed DOF, focusing entirely on the raindrop (perhaps with a reflection in the droplet) or with a little more depth allowing for the sections of the leaf that are curved towards the lense to have a bit more crispness.
I think with either or the extra barach and leaf would have fallen away into the beauitfully bokeh background or had just enough detail that it wasnt use a smear of not quite there.

Light, good, and the image has a nice smoothness to it. I personally would have prefered a brighter shade of green - a little saturation tweeking perhaps - but that is probably just me.

Overall it is a very attactive image. Please feel free to PM me with and questions or comments.
