Very unusual composition, bold with color and very good detail quality. Nice control of the lighting in the leaves. Perhaps a little shift in hue/brightness in the background (darker green) would make it a bit better. ((7))

It took me a moment to realize that the green was the negative space, NOT the leaf! An imaginative shot with bold color and composition, not to mention terrific lighting.

Nice texture on the leaf, but the neon green background draws all attention away from it.

Nice composition - the abstract nature of this image works well. 7.

Great colour, but I feel seeing more of the leaf texture would have been nice.

Every time I see this shot I like it better than the last! Those dry leaves just float in the air, and the defocused background leaf sets it off beautifully!

Ok Took my minds eye a while to focus here. Could not get off the green color. Thought I was looking at a green screen. Then I got the leaves in focus! Neat. BOL

A very interesting play with light, color and texture. It'll be interesting to see what others think of this after voting is done. Good luck in the challenge!

I love the line that the leaf makes. Great, too, that it's got that blackened edge. Banana plants are so strange...

Good abstraction and balance in composition. I find the imbalance between the colours not working somehow. The green is so incredibly bright. -7
