It doesn't make the leaf interesting by it's location and the way the lines of the concrete work it draws my eyes away from the leaf
There's no reason to look at the leaf as it's a boring subject and my eyes are drawn to something that's out of focus and in the background
Would be better if everything was in focus but that doesn't save for the fact that there is nothing interesting in this photo
The mushroom or whatever it is is not entirely in focus and is just a boring subject
Cannot really tell what I'm looking at or why
And now? It's better right?

a) leaves are cool if you have hard-ons for them
b) your next assignment is to go and take 10 photographs of the leaves using lines around them to draw attention to the subject and build composition.
For each such photo I guarantee to provide a detailed feedback in this thread

it would probably be more interesting if the acorn were in the center of the frame.
It would be even more interesting if you deleted it and took a picture that was good.
