I have a volunteer sycamore near a cypress tree in our front yard. Saw this a few mornings ago. I like the contrast between the two colors. That is the actual green of the young sycamore leaf. Added some sharpening, contrast, but saturation not adjusted.

Nice picture, I also love the contrast with the two colors, But for me I would like to see a tighter crop. I get lost with all that green, which is beautiful by the way. Nice comp with the cypress to the left. Great job :)

Agree with Kyle A slightly tighter crop will work real well Would take a little from left and some from bottom to move the smaller leaf closer to the LL corner Pleasing and excellent !!!!

I would also agree with the tighter crop, as the leaf seem to overpower the smaller main subject. Well done on the details, color, and contrast.
