To my eye, the portions of the frond above the central stalk appear to be a bit too dark.

The granite looks like snow with some texture, the way you'd like snow to contrast in your photo but it never does. Strong composition (I like the diagonal) and contrast, good.

I really like the composition and idea on this shot. I would have scored it a point higher if there had been a little more detail in the darker leaves. I think you did a good job on the background with this and overall I like it alot.

Dark leaves are maybe a little too dark - very tricky exposure though.

Nice take on "Rose on Wood". At least I think that was the idea here.
