Greetings from the Critique Club!

Hmm these challenges are tough to critique...not easy but I try. Personally I life leaves and the stages they go through, all the textures and curls, and think you have shown that very well here. I like the b/w as it helps reduce the leaf from probably uninteresting colours, at this stage, to more of a study in form and shape.

However, I feel that this shot translates more as a leaf macro which borders on cluttery, whereas most of those in the top ten show lots of negative space and a definite sense of the randomness in which the subject is found. I think just a portion of what appears to be one huge leaf would have been adequate.

Hope this has been helpful! Susan
