Excellent job on the lighting. The green on the bottom matches the leaf well. The yellow tones in the middle add some nice contrast but don't quite match the green.

The rim lighting on the leaf really make this pop. Also rather like the composition, with the leaf being place in the lighter portions of the background. Well done!

The technical aspects of this image are perfect, the lighting, the sharpness, the colors. This should score well.
