Thanks for those who took the time to comment. This was my first challenge and hopefully I will learn from it. The lighting was a little harsh but I have just bought a new monitor and hadnt calibrated it until after I posted my entry.

The shadows on the left hurt you. If the leftmost plants were all in shadows that would be better, but the way they are, I think its too distracting. Odd way of framing this too.

I see to planes here... one in focus, one not. I can't tell if you have achieved shallow DOF or not!

These are cute catkins. The lighting on them is just a bit harsh, but the DOF really works to set them apart. Nice composition, too.

Nice use of DoF, very pleasing composition, love the contrasting texture of foreground and background. Great stuff!
