I finally remembered to upload this once and for all, after being stalled and personally waiting for some more related renders to be done. Those will come in the future, but for now here's a sneak peak into one of the alleged shots.

As noted at BlenderArtists,this is both extremely beautiful and extremely simple. I think it's the only vignetted image I've seen in ages that hasn't looked contrived and annoying to me. And that includes a lot of photos. It's incredibly realistic. The only thing I miss is the bit of water connecting the drops to the leaf, but I can't imagine anyone else noticing. It's very evocative, and you melded the foreground with the background perfectly.
