I like the details on the leaves. Is that a small insect on one of the leaves? The sun keeps drawing my eyes away from the leaves, but I don't know if that's really a bad thing. The parallel lines near the center of the frame (power lines?) are a little distracting. It would be nice if that was negative space. Overall a nice photo I think but I'm no professional.

I feel like the framing is just a bit off, but i can't put my finger on it. Too much dead space in the upper right. I'm not sure what the main subject is either; the bug, the leaf, the sun?

Maybe if the sun was totally behind the leaf, and a slightly tighter crop?

I see what you were trying to do though.

Macro of the aphid? or Close up of the Leaf?
Too much sun and background. Focus and color and lighting is good.
Need to know what the focus of my attention is to be...it would be an ok shot for a botany class showing leaves of the plant. If cropped to exclude sun and some of the sky. When you have the sun hit the lens you get that aberration like you did on the upper right corner...the glare. So need to really look at the composition and framing.
It is a very good start. Just have to tighten up on what you want to show me.
If you want to show me the leaves and their veins, need to close in, either in cropping or shooting on them.

In looking closer I do believe it is a tick...

thanks for all of your valuable comments.
I do believe that my composition isn't exactly up-to the mark, can anyone advice me some books to improve my framing and composition skills
