Too much negative space for such a lovely leaf. Great lighting. Average score.

Simple, peaceful, and elegant in that simplicity. Lovely photo.

Nice simple picture, nice lighting on the leaf. I wish there was a bit more contrast between the leaf and branches to make it stand out from the background more. Perhaps more contrast would have given this more impact. If someone is looking through these shots rather quickly they might not stop long enough to really look at the shot and see the nice detail on the leaf.

IMHO the leaf is a bit too centered ...
