What amazing colors in this shot! Wonderful contrast that makes this shot have a happy vibe. I don't care for the bottom of the leaf being cut out but other than that, nice job.

Not sufficient depth of focus in my opinion

perhaps a brown berry? IMO the red draws too much attention...

I like the added color contrast elements on the brown leaf. Without them, your image would have been dull for me. With them, it adds some interest.

Wow, lots of great colors here - brown comes thru nicely - I dislike the deliberate nature of the petals & berries, tho... -- 7 --

I do like this photo a lot, however, the challenge is to make "brown" the main focus, since it is such a non-descript color. Although a nice photo, I feel like the reds and whites definitely take a lot of attention off of the brown leaf, which should be the main focus for this challenge. Nice effort!
