7D2, Sigma 150-600mmC@500mm, F14, -0.33 EC, ISO 800, handheld.  I am not sure if the leaf adds anything to the image? Thanks for any comments or suggestions, Dave

Hi David, personally I think the leave detracts and adds nothing. I would darken the whole environment so the refection comes to life with a bit more and may help reduce the brighter leaf, adding some saturation overall too. At f/14 you must have been fairly close? Getting some 'contrast' (figuratively speaking) back into the actual Crocs head will give more form and depth.

I don't mind the leaf, I can take it or leave it (no pun intended). In fact it adds a touch of depth to the otherwise dark surrounds IMO. The detail on the head and eye is excellent, especially in the uncompressed view, and the reflection is a nice bonus!

David, Excellent detail and reflection. I think it would have to be shown with and without the leaf to make a decision. I agree with Carol.
