LOVE it. Really. Beautiful, stark contrast, lovely color harmony. Interesting composition. Wonderful texture that can be explored at length. I would hang this on my wall and enjoy it. Even plan a room around it's colors. The title tells the story, strongly supported by the image. Bravo, my fav thus far.

No issues, it works. The shadow detail is perfect, as is the whites. Very nice exposure.

This is a very flat image, and as such, lacks DOF. However, it works perfectly well this way.

Color - wow, what beautiful contrast! Lighting is just right to define all of the texture. Shadow is playing a huge role in this image, passively.

Fabulous, no issues.

Description
The loneliness of this leaf is what attracted me...The tendrils of the ivy were an added benefit in my opinion....Trying to convey the beauty of nature... Hope you like it

How to improve your photo
1.
The bottom left solo tendril could be removed and the image would be a bit stronger for it.
2.
Again, this image would be lovely as part of a series of several like images.
3.
It looks like there might be a tad bit of blown highlights on the leaf, If so, bringing some of that detail back would help.

The aim of my work is to reveal the art found in our everyday surroundings. To offer through an image what we as photographers see as we go through our day. A world of light, shadows, color, texture, interaction, subtleties and contrasts. To share our view of things that make us gasp at beau...
