Shot this at SGNP Mumbai. It felt serene amidst rain in the woods. While the bunch of buds in this image are reaching out to the sun, the leaves below seem to be in a position to collect droplets of water.

Nice composition. A slightly higher Aperture value would have given a better depth-of-field to cover all the buds. If you could provide some info about the plant, it would be great.

Sure Abhishek Ji,

Shall keep this in mind in future. Thanks for your valuable comments.

Agree with Abhishek. Nice colours. There is so much of beauty around us to be captured. Slightly wider to include the full leaf on the left, without the border would strengthen the image. Thanks for sharing.
