Still trying to think of what I could get a shot whilst setting up the sprinkler I noticed the way the sunlight caught the fern leaf. Even better was the way the sprinkler's droplets were illuminated by the sun, and set off rather nicely against the dark wall. I suspect this shot is rather better than anything else I'd have achieved if left to my own devices!
Shutter speed was set reasonably slow to get some motion in the water droplets, and the aperture just enough to keep most of the fern in focus but ensure the ugly concrete block wall was blurred.
Hand held, 50mm, f4, 1/80 sec, ISO 200
(Another shot you might like, but twiddled in Lightroom)
