i have to say that i disagree with your analysis of the photo. altho i can understand finding it uninteresting (personal preference is fine by me), i think the composition is just what it should be. the shallow DOF and narrow band of focus keep the eye from following the leading lines of the fence out of the frame. besides, this photo is about the drops on the fence. nothing else. the fact that the viewer must focus on one little aspect of the shot is meant to hold interest in the micro scale of the photo.

can somebody please tell me how raindrops on a fence don't suggest rain?

Good choice of making it B&W :) Really brings out textures of the raindrops and water.

This is very cool! I like the use of the Negative space at the bottom The shot has a rustic feel and the bit of grain is perfect. I hope this ribbons!

Great DOF and I like the contrast between the crisp feel in the top half with the grainy feel at the bottom
