I didn't think I would be submitting for this one but I took a trip to my brothers school and saw this leaf and couldn't resist... I'm not expecting much from it but maybe something over a 5 will make me happy.. so my dream score is 5.5 and what I think it will get is a 5.0... Hope I'm not way of hehe...

Hey there from the Critique Club

Camera Work/Technical: You did a very nice job focusing on the subject of the image. It remains very clear and crisp while the background is blurred. The depth of field you chose for this capture is perhaps the strength of the image. You did a terrific job of isolating your subject with the depth of field that you chose.

Lighting: I like the lighting, though I'd prefer a little more contrast. You have some interesting shadows on those leaves that could have really been brought out with a slight curves adjustment.

Composition/Content: While I hold no firm belief that photography should consist as a list of rules, I would like to see this one lean a little more toward the rule of thirds. With this being a challenge that was focusing on hanging on, I'd like to see that leaf stem at the intersecting thirds line.

My Opinion: I really appreciate that you added your comments on why this image was shot, as well as your thoughts on scoring. It really helps critique the image, and is especially important when requesting thoughts from the critique club. I am happy to see that you placed above your expectations. I think that the score was fitting for the image.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide a critique on your entry,

Nice concept, but the busy background hurts this shot.

A more precise focus on your subject leaf would have received an extra point from me. Nice dof and background.

i love how the blue sky offset the leaves in front. Nice DOF.

It's really captured the message of the challenge and love the tattered portion of the leaves. The background is a little too bright and "busy" as it detracts from the main subject of the leaves. I'm wondering if perhaps, it's the zoom on your lens? Perhaps, not enough distance to give it more DOF???
