Hi Darrin,

that's a very nice shot indeed. The "tears" are crisp and the leaf looks very soft. Good composition and lines and a subtle color-scheme.

Now what's a "Voigtländer Ultron 40mm f/2 SL-II" ?

Cheers :-)

Thank you very much for the nice comments!

A very nice manual focus pancake lens manufactured by Cosina. It has a CPU so all metering features are available even on the D40. It comes in Nikon and Pentax mounts. Photozone reviewed the Nikon version a while ago.

Now thats a beautiful shot, the leaf looks almost velvet, I love the water droplets they are crystal clear.

Thank you very much Ormina!
Focusing was quite a challenge, but I'm very happy with the results.

You should be happy with this result, this is a great photo! I can almost feel the texture of the plant between my fingers.
