A lovely image. The soft tones in your image; I personally think relates to skin after a shower, the tones also bring a soft subtle texture to the image.
The composition of the focal point of the image subtlety draws the eye from the bottom left hand third up through the center third and up to the top right. This is done by you selecting the depth of field; as it focuses on the larger raindrops and the most important part of a flower- the pollen. A suggestion though maybe having the out of focus areas to be more out of focus to make it more prominent if your going for a more obvious depth of field. Also I'd suggest clone stamping the dark patch out of the image because our eyes are drawn up to that corner and it slightly spoils the whole prettiness of the flower (but that's only minor).
The quality of the image is also great. perfect ISO and exposure setting don't create any under or over exposure.
Finally I would like to see this in black and white (using the same tones) because I personally think it would add to the hole aggressive/ moody emotion rain creates.
Overall a stunning picture which would look amazing on a canvas centering someones wall.
Keep up the good work

This is definitely one of my favorite pictures of yours. The focus is done very nicely, with the center bit of the flower standing out and the droplets captured beautifully with a bit of bokeh from the out-of-focus drops. I love the angle you captured it at and the colors are beautiful, almost like a cross-processed spring but with more yellow in it. The yellows, I dare say, are also gorgeous. They contrast well with the flower because of their creaminess and make the flower seem solid, pure white, something to stare at. The background bokeh through trees or bushes is nice but like AFOPhotography said, the little patch at the top right is a slight bit distracting.
To sum it, up, this is beautiful and gave me a sort of peaceful/relaxed feeling when I looked at it. If that's what you were aiming for the viewers to feel, then allow me to suggest that this photo was a success!
