I like the contrast of the bright green against the dark background. I would love to see this cropped in even more so you know it is still a leaf, but it has more of an abstract quality. You can really enhance the veins too.   Posted: 05/13/2022 14:07:21

You have nice lines, and the leaf really stands out against the black background. Good details, too. Cropping in from the left would eliminate the light green areas which are a bit of a distraction for me.   Posted: 05/14/2022 14:29:49

I like the bright green against the dark background. Taking the leaf at an angle adds interest, and the image is sharp. I cleaned up the image some by stamping out the small leaf areas at the top, and getting rid of the small white area behind the leaf. The white area really drew my eye, since it was the brightest thing in the image.   Posted: 05/14/2022 15:17:16

A very nice green leaf, My only suggestion would be to darken the few lite spots on the leaf, and add a small border (3pic) around the image, to separate it from the black , not in the picture.   Posted: 05/16/2022 12:22:25

To my eye it is a very sharp image especially coming from a 5 MP camera. Another proof that it is not the camera that makes a fine image it is the photographer. Good work.   Posted: 05/18/2022 18:41:34
