Thank you all for your kind comments. I think the main problem was that I forgot to read the whole description and you know, I am not a big abstract photographer. :-) I should have payed more attention. F/11 wa sthe biggest aperture value I can use on my camera, so there was not much to do about the DOF. Maybe next time, thanks again. :-)

Very nicely done. Good composition. Not much DOF, though -- the big veins are OOF.

If it is recognizable as an object - it is not an abstract

City streets and squares. Arterial roads, and blocks of housiing. Is there NOTHING new?

Definitely an abstract in my opinion even though the guidance was "if you can tell what it is, it's not." No point deducted from me for not being an anstract. It is well composed and a pleasing image. My comments for improvement are:
1) A stronger backlighting would add and 2) The larger veins are a bit soft because they are not quite on the same plane as the main leaf. If you did not stop full down - f32, f45 - try it again if yu can.

Excellent color and contrast.

I think your score will probably suffer as a result of this image being recognisable as a leaf...shame, as it is would have done very well in a macro challenge
