Thanks to all for your coments. I shot this a little tight so didn't have any room on the left, also know what vignetting is, but not familar on how to use it in pp, will have to look it up in my Elements 3 book and try it out.~ Stan

The lighting is very nice, and the greens are wonderfully captured. Like Bob, I would consider cropping a bit differently. Or maybe just add some darker vignetting to the corners so that the lovely curled leaf and water drop stand out more.

Nice photograph Stan, I like the luminous colours and the drop of water adds atmosphere to the image.

From a purely personal point of view, I would have liked a little more green on the left so the point of the leaf curl actually fitted more closely to a 'Rule Of Thirds' intersection as would the drop of water.

It certainly fits the topic as textures is the theme and the important issue is how yourself, as the artist, wish to portray the subject.
So, well done Stan ~ Regards Bob
