Sky in a drop

"By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest."
~ Confucius

Am I happy with this shot? No! However I now know what I would have done differently. The photograph is of a lone drop of water on a wire fence refracting the dusk sky in the background. I think I should have been closer to the rain drop in addition to cranking the f-stop all the way to 22 which would obviously have resulted in a longer exposure time.
