Hm. A bit over exposed, and unbalanced light on the leaf patterns hurts here. Fix those, and this is a fine entry into the challenge, but technicals send this below average to a 4 for me.

Nicely composed, but your lighting needs a bit of work, there is a hot spot on the main leaf that could have been eliminated if the direct sunlight were eliminated.

Your lighting is quite harsh and looks like it came in through a window. Next time try throwing a white sheet over the window. It will difuse the light a little and make it look much softer on your subject!

The leaves do have an interesting pattern, though I think that cropping the shot so there is no distracting background would help. I think that a more diffuse light source would help remove the harsh shadows too.

This is beautiful! It looks 3-dimensional. It's composed so well. Good luck. I really love this one.

This is a rather overexposed. I like the subject of the leaves. My suggestion is that a single leaf needs to fill the frame, rather than the whole plant, to really show off the pattern on the leaves. If the intent was to show the pattern the leaves make together than an more overhead angle of view is needed along with a much tighter crop to eliminate any other details (like the mulch and the wall, etc),
