I really like your composition here but as has been said already the main stem should be in sharp focus, as it was advanced editing I'm thinking the gaussian blur isn't the reason for the lack of sharpness?


Hmm, should have blurred on a separate layer and then masked or erased it on the stem maybe....

This has a softness. I like the microscopic detail. It's very intriguing. You want to study every inch of that dead leaf. Nicely done and not the usual. I'm bumping it up from my original score.

Nice texture, love the colours. Not enough of interest in the picture to push it to a top score. All imho obviously. Good luck!
