Wow, this is absolutely stunning! I love how the light is reflected and enhanced by the water droplets on the leaf, it's incredibly beautiful. To be honest with you I'm not sure what to critique, but I'll do my best.

This is an unbelievably beautiful picture, and I think that finding moments such as this is something that all photographers are yearning to do. Finding something magical and then sustaining it through photography really sustains a connection between the picture and the viewer, and that is something that is really significant about this capture.

It looks effortless, I must admit. Like you saw this glowing leaf sitting on the ground, bent down and snapped a picture. But I suspect that it was bit more complicated than that. Those water droplets would only have refracted that light at a specific angle, at least, it wouldn't have been so beautiful any other way. The colour (yes, I'm Canadian, eh?) is really impressive because the actual colour of the leaf is more muted than the water droplets. There are so many little details to this that I just want to stare at it for hours.

All of the droplets look good, but I think I should mention that the best ones are the ones that you can see the magnified detail through, not the ones that are so glowing that they're just beads of light. I really like the droplets that have a focal point of light, and it kind of resembles a flare inside the little drop of water. The leaf is really enhanced by its surroundings because the darkness simply draws more attention to the light.

This is absolutely beautiful, and I think that's kind of obvious because you're nearing on 100,000 views on this deviation. :thumbsup: You totally deserve it.

How to describe this photo other than to say breath taking! The shadows of the rock add to the brilliance of the reflection of light on the water droplets. The impression of the leaf because of the light reflection make it seem metallic. The differences between, the copper, gold, bronze, silver, brown, black, yellow, and white seem to melt together as in a melting pot. It is as if this whole object was poured into a mold with hot metal, yet the silver/white areas almost give it the appearance of ice.

The droplets give magnification to the smaller details of the veins of the leaf. It gives the whole leaf more perspective by the different sizes of water droplets, especially since they didn't combine.

This photo is just so totally awesome, the balance is perfect. It is a very beautiful shot.
