    Strengths:
    The placement of the subject across the diagonal and the sharp fucus on the right cabbage brings my eye nicely through the image. Your exposure produces a good variety of texture and subtle green colours.
    Suggestions:
    This image is well framed to make the point and wouldn't improve with any changes.

    Strengths:
    My first thought was that it had such perfect leaves, but after reading the title, I guess that's why. The composition shows off the main plant and depth of field is well used to keep the plant in the back a little softer. Fills the frame really well. This is an image that whispers rather than shouts; it's not over-saturated and it just unfolds softly; treatment suits the subject well.
    Suggestions:
    I don't think "improvement" is necessary. It doesn't have a high impact, "look at me" first impression so is the type of image easily overlooked. But without impacting on all the good things about it, you can't really change anything.

    Strengths:
    The size and spread of the leaves is well-shown, with a second head in the background, and the soft lighting allows for detail in the texture of the leaves. Exposure is suited to the subject, definition is generally sharp.
    Suggestions:
    The composition, although it illustrates the subject, seems rather unbalanced, with the main head(the centre of interest?) drawing the eye strongly into the lower right-hand corner. A different camera-angle might have put the COI in a better-balanced position.
