Nice composition, good colors and pattern. I like that there is another leaf in the background which gives an impression that it was taken in the plant's natural habitat. Was it?

good setting - background a tad intrusive

I don't normally like out of focus objects in the background, but the placement and the extreme detail of the leaves in the foreground make up for it. And those foreground leaves: the white outlines against the black background with the bright greens ... they're awesome. Like the cropping across the top also.

Wonderfully structured image and the use of backlighting makes the picture that little bit different..bumping from 7 to 9.

Excellent backlighting and composition.

Needs to be more vibrant in the foreground

Beautiful composition - I love the way you placed the plants at 90 degree angles , and your lighting is excellent.

Beautifully done. I like the element of backlighting the foreground flower. Against the black background, it really pops. I think you could have eliminated the background fern altogether and used the negative space to accentuate the subject even more.

Good idea nicely composed. Would be stronger if we could see either more or less of the background.

Very nice - I really like the one in the background - that takes an already good shot to the next level.

One of the bests of this kind. (better as mine :) Nice composition, and the blurred one in the background is a plus... great backlighting. ... 10

Excellent diagonal composition. Top 3 entry IMO

Great lighting, really delineates the edges of the leaves. Love the faint background branch too. Lovely composition with strong diagonal and with that little bit of interest in what would be the black half.

nicely unique - great photo!

Wonderful lighting. I like the repeating shape in the background but wonder if it would be stronger if it were more green (instead of gray.) Textures are amazing.

I love the simplicity in this photo... the beautiful elegance of the lighting, the background, and the composition work together to create a breathtaking image. Well done. :o)
