I like the simplicity of this very much, Pushkar.

The slightly soft focus, grain, and reflections of light on the water drops is really eye catching.
The tones of green are naturally relaxing anyway, and for such a simple subject, I find it an interesting shot with plenty of detail.

Nice composition with the left hand edge of the leaf leaving the frame, but with the spine of the leaf making a nice natural lead in from the top centre down to the bottom left. The shallow depth of field on the tip of the leaf works for me too, getting the eye to wander around looking for more detail

I'm not a huge fan of excessively bold and contrasting watermarks, but technically, the subject and technique have been well handled.



Yes, I like this one better, because the tip of the leaf is also in the shot. Still not crazy about the signature ... I've done a workshop, and I hope you don't mind. I've just cloned out some of the background distractions.

Another wonderful shot with amazing light and exposure control, Pushkar!

The POV is excellent in this shot and the droplets indeed look like pearls in the scene.
Well caught moment with superb sharpness and contrasts.
Nice work!

For me, i would rather crop it tighter and leave the edge of the leaf as diagonal
