[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When this picture was taken, there was very little green anywhere -- everything was still in brown hibernation mode. But I was walking along a small stream, and I found this tiny little plant growing up in the middle of the water. The water was hitting it pretty hard and creating that ripple you see on the left side. Despite that, this little plant looks beautiful and healthy, and I decided a macro shot of it would look great.

Hi Brain,
Interesting POV and a good job on the colors and the leafs. A pitty that the left leave is OOF and that you have some OE spots in the water. Try using a Polarized filter when shoting water to overcome the burned out spots. I don't see what F-stop you've used but I feel that 2 stops higher will give you a better DOF.

Hi Brian
I have checked up a bit on your camera's performance specs. I see what you mean. I think you have done great work with the rather limited resources you have (not trying to down run the Powershot , but merely being practical). Yes, all I can wish for you is to soon have the ability to upgrade to something more current and worth while.
I like this shot. Very interesting and original POV. Although there might be a couple of nits, I think you know what those are so there is no need to expand.
Anyway, well done and TFS.
