I like this shot, especially with the one light creating really nice predictable highlights in the water. I think the crop hurts it a bit though becasue the leaf, a really vertical object, feels oddly constrained within a horizontal frame. I feel like either a larger horizontal crop or a panoramic vertical would be a lot more effective.

Very good macro. Nice DoF and detail. Very dramatic lighting. Like the choice of panorama view,
