Nicely seen, though I think a slightly higher viewpoint looking down more would exclude the path and bushes in the background. While the differential focus is effective, the whole leaf should be in focus as it doesn't have an obvious focal point, so a slightly smaller aperture would help, while still giving the out of focus areas.
It also needs to be brighter, those colours could be much more brilliant, without over saturating it, and a polariser could really help here, reducing the reflection and intensifying the colours.

Nicely done but just a little more depth of field to get the full leaf sharp, or, at least, the area nearest to the camera. Tones nice.

Thanks all for the comments! Grin

It's curious to see that what made me choose this version over similar ones is what others would change Smile but now looking at it again, after your feedback, I can see where I could make it differently. Will try to have another go at it, time and weather allowing.
