Shadows and Water Drops

I saw this plant and knew it was going be in black and white instantly because I wanted to shadow the leaves.  The water drops aren’t from rain but the window washers that were cleaning the outside windows.  The other unique thing about this picture is that I shot this on the venerable Canon 400D with the even more ancient Tamron 18-200.  I have been in a shooting funk with all my high end gear and wanted to prove to myself that its skill, not gear that make a picture.
