Snapped on the way to work in the morning as I noticed how the water droplets made the leaf sparkle.

Very simple, desaturated, and then a layer mask to paint in the parts I wanted coloured

The focus problems are there, but not that big a deal in my mind. I think the DOF is nice, though perhaps if the entire leaf were not in focus it would look better if both ends were out of focus? Kinda nitpicky, though, and certainly not enough to explain your score...

I think it would have been better to gently spray the leaf so the drops remained nice and round; maybe even dab them on individually. That would have made (to my mind) a huge difference.

Overall, I think this is a much nicer shot than its score gives it credit for. Nice job.

nice idea, but it's out of focus, IMO
