did some sharpening on the leaf, slighty lowered the white balance and then resized the image using photoshop.

An amazing catch, the background is clean and out of focus just enough to emphasis the center-piece without taking away. The texture of the leaf is definetly a find and in good focus, I'm impressed with it

Very cool.

It looks like a stained-glass frame. Wow. This is a great shot. It's too bad that the leading edge is just a little out of focus...

I love the color. (assuming it's filtered) and is that a metal leaf? Or spraypainted?

this could be such a good image- that white in the back is distracting to the eye and you have such good tones in the bottom half and the leaf itself is very interesting maybe it could be shot at a different angle 6 (an 8 if that white thing weren't there...)

It almost looks silver doesn't it? I'd crop out part of the area to the right so it's not so centered. Very pretty. 7

The background is a bit too busy for me.

The white item in the background is a distraction

very nice, i like how the focus is just on the bent back piece (except maybe for that little leaf below it in the bottom/left side?)
