    The horizon is the first thing I see, the leaf is the last.

    Its a little dull, and the leaf isn't too interesting.

    If you want to make the horizon part of the image you might want to have it sharp. Some very nice images can be created by a wideangle lens, stopped down to maximize dof and placing an interesting object in the foreground, just as your doing with the leaf. Youre image does not have a lot of visual elements so you'll need to increase the contrast and saturation to give the image more punch.

    Try giving us a comparison.

    2 is subtantially better, but I also agree with a5i736, the leaf isn't really interesting, you might be able to find better ones out there.

    It's still a really great photo, and a great idea.

    Well, to say the truth, the photo doesnt say anything to me, no meaning, nothing. The lighting isnt too good either.

    I suggest cropping the top down to just above the top of the blade of grass with the white tip......
