I took this shot this morning while out with the dogs. I had my cropped frame Canon 500D camera with me for convenience with my 18-55mm IS lens which worked quite well given the relatively low light levels. I envisaged this in black & white with the raindrops on the leaves and a soft focused background, hence the largest aperture setting. I might try it again with a tripod and my full frame 5D and some extension tubes, etc.
