Thought I'd just invite some feedback on this unusual angle shot.

Thank You.

I like this shot alot actually. Makes me feel like I'm falling into a vortex of color. My only suggestion is to try to gaussian blur the background a bit. I find the leaf on the right side a bit distracting.

However applied FastStone sharpener which seem to help a bit.

I think the idea for the picture and the lighting/exposure are just right. But I'd like some more DOF and also find the other leaf a bit distracting. I suggest you try to shoot a new one using a tripod or something else to hold the camera steady for a longer exposure with smaller aperture.

I used CS2 to adjust the histogram and added USM to similar effect.
