You got so many great comments on this shot already, that I'm not really sure if anything I would have to say would really help.
I do really like this shot for a few reasons. First, your focus and clarity are really great, which increases the wonderful detail we see in both the leaf and the water.
The color is great. Nice bright leaf against a fairly colorless background really helps for the leaf to stand out and grab us.
The angle and framing/cropping are ok. I like that this is a vertical crop and not horizontal. I think that really makes the lines 'flow' better. No pun intended. lol.
I'm not usually a fan of slow shutter speed water, but this is so very mild that it really does look good. It's when it looks like milk that it kind of disturbs me.
Anyway, you have done a wonderful job with this shot, and I think it deserves the high score.
Great shooting.

Now this is fantastic. The water looks like a creased up sheet! Focus is right on and the exposure is just right. I don't know whether it would have helped seeing a little more to the right of this, but you wouldn't want to sacrifice what we're seeing on the left, so I don't know!

Very nice. Lovely contrast between grey rock and brown leaf. This will do well.

I especially like the effect that the motion of the water gives

Youve captured the contrasting textures of leaf and water very well. That would make an interesting image itself, but the brilliant color of the leaf adds that extra impact to make this a great photo.

Good capture of motion here.

Nice and simple shot. Looks like a calendar photo(compliment).

I LOVE this shot, the autumnal colours of the leaf look great against the desaturated water. The border works well here, and complements the photo nicely. I personally wish that the leaf was composed diagonally across the frame... maybe from top left to bottom right. There's something about the top-down composition that bothers me. 8

I like this a lot. A whole season conveyed by one close-up shot. Good work!

Nice photo. This one is something of a sleeper, I'm afraid. It really doesnt look like much in the thumbnail, but it sure does shine when viewed full size. Great color, clarity, and composition.

Wow, those ripples look great and I love the colour of the leaf against the grey. Excellent shot, I'm jealous!

I almost missed seeing the great quality of this shot! Your composition and lighting are wonderful. The subject matter is simple, yet powerful! I love it! Great job!

Wow, this is a beautiful image. I love the composition and the flow of the lines (water).
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent capture! Clarity is great and the detail is wonderful...good job! The border is not what I would have used IMHO of course. I always get negative comments on my borders....again great job I love it!

Beautiful image!!! I love the density of the water, the contrast with the leaf, the simultaneous sense of action and rest that the transparency adds.

great shot - very good composition and detail. I love this...wish it were mine!!! :) nice work.

Excellent! How did you get the leaf to stay in one spot for sharp focus?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2003 11:49:11 PM
Good capture.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2003 10:51:56 PM
Very vivid colors in the leaf keep your eyes on it. The reflections of shadows and light in the water makes the water seem to flow off the image. Very crisp and sharp picture. Wow. Framing is awesome.

Very, very nice shot. One of the best this challenge. I hope you score well.

very nice. great contrast between leaf and background. the running water just makes it even better. this could be a winner!

Beautiful textures and a great capture. The water looks lovely - very nice shot. Perhaps a little closer to the leaf would have been good. [9]

Stunning light and colors. The water action is really beautiful. Love your shot, nicely done.

the contrast is really nice and I like the flow of water over the leaf
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2003 09:31:12 AM
This is really nice. I love the leaf only in it's beautiful color against the b/w. That adds a nice contrast. The water flow is perfect and not too soft. 9

What a neat photo. I can almost hear the bubbling water and smell the fall leaves.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/22/2003 01:15:54 AM
I love the flow and motion of the water over the leaf...and the simplicity of the two contrasting colors...
