Its one of my favorites in a week with 97 (and counting) great entries.
this shot has lots of appeal to me and I really like your take on this week's topic. I might suggest if possible to try and do a pin point focus on one individual leaf to give a bit more DOF and intrigue to the photo. I looks as though you captured this in its natural setting. good luck and kudos!
Irish and I are on the same wavelength.
Good composition colours and clarity
I like the warmth of the leaves against the coldness of the rock. Nice!
