thanks for the comments. just wanted to add that the white spot wasnt a glare or highlight but was actually the color of the tip of the leaf :) ...

Good shot; excellent counterbalance by the sharply lit stem; found the shiny tip of top leafend a bit distracting. Enjoyable effort.

i can see little dust particles on the shot in the background. It's an interesting leaf but the dusts are really annoying. 7 paganini

I find the simplicity of the colors and the composition very intriguing. It looks like the leaf is dancing or something. Might have been neat (though it would be a totally different pic) if you could arrange two of them (maybe a yellow or orange one) and make it look like they were dancing together. Very nice pic, I like the red on black. karmat 8

Nice rich color. Kind of odd how only the light is on one point of the top leaf. - Inspzil

Pretty, makes me think of a red starfish. Lighting is wonderful. Would like it even a tad bit better if is wasn't so centered.

i like the simplicity a lot. Nice lighting. You did a good job of lighting the leaf without lighting the bg. Two little things - the hot spot on the top corner and the twisted part on the bottom - bother me a little, but not too much. The water drops are a nice touch, and I love the color. ~indi

nice. framing could be better. ok lighting. 5

Love the color and strong contrast! Nitpic 1: I wish you had gotten a more perfect leaf :P The dried up tip at the top looked like blowout until I studied it more closely (maybe it is a bit blown afterall??). Nitpic #2 I'd prefer either the entire background be speckled or solid. Great job :) Lisa
