Already a wonderful work, so I'll get right into the analysis and critique. First, symmetry between the disconnecte lovely timing. Many water-droplet stills tend to hit on the earlier part of the ripple [that is, after the immediate drop, but before the second bounceback]. As we see here in your image, this is the second ripple upward in a row. What impresses me is the velocity of the water popping back up and out. There's perfect symmetry between the disconnected orblet and the rest of the small tower beneath it, which adds a lot to the general feel to the image as a whole [especially as this occurs at the very centre of the image]. I also love the angling. You placed the actual ripple perfectly in the centre of the image, along its horizon, and thusly the water bounceback dominates the upper quadrants of the picture, whilst its reflection shows more softly in the bottom quadrants. Expertly done. A deeper focus may have added a bit more life to the ripple itself, catching more of the outer waves as well as the main forming one, however, this image leaves little to desire, and you should be proud of it. Nice work, and I'd love to see more like this down the line.

There's an old saying that it's not the equipment that makes a great photograph, it's the photographer's vision.  I think your vision for this image, surely your vision for selecting *this* image from the many I expect you took, shows us what you wanted to be seen in the reflection of the water, the interplay of lights and shadows caused by the reflected bright background and the darker area behind the camera.  I don't think even if your goal was to merely imitate images you've seen before that we should consider this image of lesser originality.  You executed the shot you were looking for, regardless of where inspiration came from.  I agree with the earlier critique: "Nice work, and I'd like to see more like this down the line."

I think such an image is to be criticized virtually impossible.
Too few parameters you can really influence as Photograf with small equipment.
For this purpose, one needs to have expensive equipment with high-speed camera.
But even then you can affect little.
Only from a larger selection of images choose the most beautiful.
Beautiful shot Clap
