contrast needed between foreground and background

Fantastic! How did you ever manage to catch that drop? Beautifully done.

This will score very high, I expect. However, I'm prepared to be unpopular and suggest that the employment of depth of field achieves little more here than would holding a bit of contrasting paper behind the subject. I mean the out-of-focus background has no contextual purpose. It is a technically proficient photograph, and the falling drop of course provides just the wow factor required for DPC success. It's just that I feel you've used depth of field as a drunk uses a lamp post ... for support, rather than for illumination. 6.

back for comments. May be if you could crop just the top white portions, this may add more impact ?

7- beautiful leaf and drop, i like the light area at the top of the background; i suggest you crop a good deal on the right side

Most of sbject in picture is in focus that is not shallow DOF

Very nice Shallow DOF

Though in truth, I'd prefer a littl more foreground action.

Lack of sharpness on the leaf - 5

pretty cool, not sure about the amount of dead space on the photo, it adds nothig as there is nothing to see, i would have cropped tightly around the leaf
