Paul Garrett has sent in this image of leaves. Paul has found good light to work with and exposed the foreground leaves nicely. The background distracts a little, the brighter (light colored) leaves in the background take attention away from the lifeless leaves. The small branch the leaves are attached to, tries to work as a leading line but can not overcome the background. A slightly different angle, to the right or left might help alleviate the background or you could actually snap this little twig off and hold it in front of a different background. With a less cluttered background it might be interesting to see this in black and white.
