Really, really nice!

In fact, pretty close to perfect! The only thing I could critique it on is the lower left and right corners look a little out of focus, so perhaps a smaller aperture, like f11 or f16 would have been better. But seriously, it's a great shot and I'd be delighted with it!

Thanks on kind words! I was pretty angry on my self when I saw photo on computer and notice that lower corners are out of focus. It is my mistake because camera was in “P” mode instead in “M”. Through viewfinder leaf looks pretty sharp and I haven’t see need for bigger f number, although I knew that leaf isn’t 100% flat and something like this cloud happened.

Cheers!

Just put your camera to A for aperture priority and choose an f number like f11 or f16. The bigger the number, the more will be in focus, but sadly the quality will also become a little less sharp, so it's worth finding the smallest f-number which has everything in focus. Note your shutter speed will become quite slow though, so you may need a tripod... or a higher ISO if handheld...

I so rarely use A and T modes that some times almost forget that they exist. It is not good practice, I know. I’ll try to be more careful next time when taking a shot like this :D .

Cheers!
