As soon as I loaded this in Photoshop, I noticed that the vibrancy of your image increased - the image seemed to be in sRGB though, so I don'd know why this is. Anyhow, for my mod I upped the vibrance a bit - it's a nice image (though I am not absolutely sure about the yellow bit) and the extra saturation makes it sing more, for me.

I just uploaded my mod and I see that Sue had basically the same idea as I did.

Anyway, here's what I think of it. As far as composition is concerned, I have no problems with this image, it works quite well. Depth of field is nice - I like having the front leaf blurred and the other leaf in focus, although the dof is too shallow to have every single part of the second leaf sharp, but it's not something that spoils the image for me at all, so let's not worry about that. I do think it could be a bit sharper - did you sharpen it for upload?

For the mod, I played around with levels, contrast, brightness, colour saturation, hue, and finally I used Unsharp Mask to sharpen it (more?).

I hope this helps.

P.S. And you may want to remove the apostrophe from the title.
(Sorry, that's my professional training kicking in...)
