Hi - I would also consider myself an amateur, others on here will be able to advise you better on the technical aspects. What I would say is that you have an eye for a photo and have captured the "purity" of water here. If you have cropped this then, personally, I would have left it a bit bigger to include more of the larger ripples. I would have also been tempted to have a look at cropping further to isolate the central ripples in a flat area of water. Look forward to seeing more of your work .

Welcome, Bagus.

I agree with Stephen 100%.

Digital shots cost nothing - experiment, play and have fun.

I don't feel qualified to make any useful comments, except to say that I think it is a great photograph. In your backyard? Well, it reminds us that we don't need to travel half way around the world to get stunning images.

I'm also just learning but have been trying something similar indoors and I've found the best way to capture a drop of water falling is to mount your camera on a tripod or a beanbag or anything that will keep it steady. Suspend a plastic bag with water in it over the bowl (puddle in this case) and get down level with the water. Put a tiny pin hole in the bag and wait until it drips. After a while you can judge when the drip will hit the water. The key to this method is to pre-focus first on the spot where the drop will fall. Try standing a pencil in the water to focus on, they remove it.
Good luck
