I tried to take some pictures of wet leaves after rain but had some problems some of you may know how to solve. First: evel light wind moves the leaf taht I can't take a good picture, besides it's usually cloudy and I can't use fast shutter speed. Increasing ISO doesn't seem to solve the problem, from iso 50 to 200 the difference in sutter speed wasn't that big (from 1/20 to 1/60s). Using flash seems to be good idea but leaf gets really bright. So how do you make those great wet leaves photos?? I thought about just spraying them with water on sunny day. tis one was the only one that came good. It's just cropped and resized. Taken with FZ 10, on A mode, iso 50 f:5.2 1/80s, with flash.

Wait until it brightens up a little or, as you suggested, wet the leaves when the sun is out. On this particular shot you would have done better to focus on the water drop and then reframe to your liking.
