This was one of those "If I don't take this pic NOW it won't look as good" so I snapped away. The light hitting the leaf just drew my eye into it.

I find this photo too cluttered and 'bitty'- the leaf in the centre that seems to be the point of focus just isn't enough to hold my interest.

a little too much confusion.

hmmm, a bit more thoughtful composition would of helped here.. nothing `draws` me into the photo.

I can see what you were going for here, but the image seems a bit busy. I like the bokeh in the foreground, but the focal point in the image is super small, and I feel like I am having to strain to see it. I think if you were in closer to the yellow flower it may have helped. HOpe this helps you.

Nice idea, but so busy. The leaf gets lost despite being the most in-focus object.
