You didn't leave any photographer's comments on the photo, so without knowing what your intent was, I can only give my own personal opinion on this shot.
It definately fits the branch category in a very literal sense.
Usually, having the horizon line not horizontal bugs me, however, it's off enough in this photo to actually benefit the photo with dramatic angle. I think it does help to add some interest to the shot. There is some grain or noise in the background that I'm not sure if it was intentional or not, but In my own personal opinion, I would like to see it without the grain.
the color of the leaves is good. I also like the added color of the sun in the upper right.
The focus seems a bit soft throughout the photo. it works on the background to keep the background non distracting, but I would like to see some crisp focus on the leaves. The sharpest focus looks like the spot on the left edge of the photo where the yellow leaf is damaged, which is not the most appealing area of the photo.
I like the angle you chose not only because of the interest it adds to the background but also because the leaves are coming out of the upper right of the photo and create nice diagonals within the photo.
I think it's missing something though to make it really stand out among all the other branch photos.

I see what you were going for lots of potential for a great photo. I think if the back ground fell more into shadow it would reall make the fuzz stand out more.

I dont really get the title in relation to the shot. I like the lighting, but I'm not sure about the angle of the camera since you can see so much of the tilted background.

nice warm feel to this shot. wish the leaves were in a little better health, but not much to be done about that.
