Different but I like it Smile The Silhouette on the leaf is great. The bright highlight on the left draws the eye away a bit, I've tried a very quick mod reducing that a bit.

fantastic light, you have taken the shot, very nicely, but to me there is some technical fault, i agree with the above that the bright area of the left side is distracting, you can easily crop that portion out,

your focus is also not perfectly in that place where it should be, the silhouette moth(i guess) is in soft focus, and the area in front of it is in sharp focus, practice can cure this problem,

otherwise it is a good shot,
wish you best of luck for your future works...

I've never uploaded a mod before so hope I did it right. Really like the view of the silhouette. But did find that bright area distracting..........Sandy

Hello, Daniel. I like this image because it's different and, to my mind, slightly abstract. I like the patterns and light on the leaf, too. I agree about the left side, so have done a modification where I cloned in some more leaf patterns and then applied gaussian blur to the cloned area. I also adjusted levels and contrast to darken the silhouette, sharpened to bring out the leaf texture, cropped both sides to give a square format and place the silhouette into the bottom right third, because there is a lot of "dead" space, then added a little frame.
Pamela.
