Hello from the Critique Club.

Let me start off by saying that blue background is wonderful, I really like how it changes colors subtly in the frame. Also the detail on the leaf is spot on. Those eaten wholes really give a good interest. I also really like the placement of the subject how it pops out of the corner and twists around in the frame.

Some things to consider for the challenge and in general. While I really like the subject here, I think having the whole leaf included in the depth of field might have been a better choice. I think you loose a bit by having the front of the leaf slight of of focus. As for scoring, it most likely has to do with the subject title tied back to the challenge description.

This would have done much better in a floral challenge. It is an excellent still life study with a tons of good merits.
