    Actually, the image was rotated 90 degrees. The vertical bars are really shadows from horizontal window blinds. The lighting is from the sun. The black is fill from the image processor.

    really simple and very effective - great light.... but appears to be some vertical shadows?

    Nice backlighting, and very crisp.

    Perhaps a closer crop vertically would be better. Great idea - love the backlit leaves. Gentle and natural.

    The sharpness, lighting and color are very attractive here. The green against the black background is attractive as well. Upon looking at some of the leaves, it seems that shadows from backlighting appear on them. With the background blacked out, the backlit shadows seem out of place. (Of course I could be wrong! Please explain the shadows if I am.) Good luck!

    I like the composition and understated color palate here. A favorite.

    Beautiful natural structures / patterns to see in your picture. Actually I had the same idea (light through a leaf) but now I'm glad I changed my mind.
High in my votes!

    I'd have zoomed/cropped on the one central leaf.

    like the light work done here but IMO would have more of the black on the left

    I think you had a great idea replacing the background with black - it makes for a really striking image. Unfortunately the white edges detract a bit.

    Very nice shot! I rated you high in the challenge, but I think you could have done a better job on the masking, it looks a little choppy, maybe some feathering or flow could have blended it better. I also see what appears to be the window frame in the shadows, this could be corrected during the shoot with a white sheet between the ivy and the light source to soften the blend. But all and all this appealed to me. Good luck in the challenge!
