Day 21-Raindrops And Ripples

Today was a wet, rainy day here in Georgia. Here's my 1st real attempt ar capturing rain drops and the resulting ripples as the rain hits our deck: Day 21-Raindrops And Ripples

As you can see the photo is a little out of focus, especially on the drops/ripples. The auto-focus wouldn't work on this for some reason so I used manual focus. I think it was a combination of the long focal length and my poor manual focus technique that did it. Oh well, it was a learning experience and I can only improve.

Anyone have some tips on how to capture something like this?
