Post-challenge: Thanks for all the nice comments and scores.

The droplets are a bit sharp ... they were dull and lifeless after resizing w/o post-resize sharpening, so my choice was that or the too sharp I went with. Looks like I made the right choice! :>)

This is a wonderful photograph. I love how the complex elements fall into darkness and the simplicity in nature shines through. You captured a wonderful moment. The composition is great.

Good one.
Aren't the water drops a little too sharpened?
