The depth of field is perfectly calculated to keep just enough sharp without including any extraneous details. The right about of detail on the stalk and leaves is shown, and the contrast of the two surface textures really accentuates the difference of growth shape between trunk and branches. A difference which defines the whole space of the frame nicely.

I think the color leans too far towards yellow. It is nice that the image is so vibrantly saturated, but the green channel looks clipped in places which is a sign it has probably gone too far to yellow. Certainly too far for my personal taste, at any rate. Perhaps adding blues and desaturating the highlights would be good steps to give image more depth; the clipped channel is the only real technical flaw in an otherwise well executed piece.

What do you think?

When I saw the thumbnail for this photograph on the main page, my first reaction was "Wow". The colours and focus are fantastic and it really is an overall great photo.

Perhaps it would look better if the ends of the plant/leaves were not so out of focus and bright, as well as the leaves in the bottom right of the image.

But I like the blurriness of the background which makes the subject stand out more. It also has a very soft look and the reflection of the light looks great too.

I like your style and love the picture! ^_^

I personally enjoy looking at all the detail in this picture. You've clearly captured the texture of this leaf remarkably, it's fantastic. Green is my favorite color and few images can really relate the essence of "green," not only as a color but as an idea and a movement. Today everyone is obsessed with the green movement, so many corporations that are the farthest thing from being green have tried to, and successfully seduced many of us, wrapped up in capitalism, to buy green products. The exploitation of something that should be taken seriously is ridiculous. This photograph reminds us of the simplicity and simultaneous complexity of nature. It's the most beautiful thing! And this picture does it justice.

I was going to write this as a critique but I'd have to upgrade to do that :(
on a curious note, is this some type of fern or is it a mountain ash tree? 'Cause I have a young mountain ash (my bro named it bulbasaur lol...) and it's new leaves look just like that. just wonderin' :)
