This is a gorgeous shot -- deep green and purple hues. The veins and drops are perfect. The composition is so fine as well -- with the center falling off to those great, rich emerald tones.
I love this shot.

As above. Very good composition and treatment of the subject, both in the color and DOF.

Only slight distraction is in the bottom of the image is a few little jagged sections of the green stems, might be worth burning that slight section down to soften it. (this is a tiny crit as Im being very picky here but think the photos very good) Some peeps might say crop in more but I think your right, it needs that space to breath imo.

Again a very good image and very strong.
