    I would add subtle Brightness and Contrast layer to the Papaya Leaves with Luminosity masks to protect the background.

    Not perhaps the most popular subject but something different. I feel it needs a little something to make it really different, selecting the subject and applying a strong contrast set to luminosity is a thought.

    I could see this as fine art. Like Krishna and Jonathan suggested. Some contrast and a vignette around the edges.

    David, you have done very well with a subject that is easily passed by and considered not interesting. sharpness is very good. I like all the crinkles on the leaf. Background looks nice. Agree with Jonathan on increasing the contrast. If you are able to bring out contrast and tonal variations, this could make a great image on B&W.
