It does look a bit more vibrant when viewed in its compressed size here in the forum than it does do size in flickr...
I like the OOF leaves, it definitely works to the photographer's style of shooting. If they weren't there it would look a bit staged, whereas the leaves imply that the shot was taken candidly, even if it wasn't. I like it.
