General
impression
Technically, everything appears to have been done carefully & correctly. My only question would be if you made this image using the "auto" settings on your camera. (or did you select the aperature and shutter speed yourself?)

Composition
& perspective
Nice perspective, it is refreshing to see a unique angle used...

Use of camera,
exposure
& speed
exposure is fine, I am not sure if you adjusted it, or if this is the auto exposure...
8/10
Depth
of field
foreground is sharp, and background is soft...the 25 ISO helped to keep depth of field shallow.

Lighting
backlighting on the leaves is nice, color looks accurate.

How to improve your photo
1.
I would recomend cropping this image a bit tighter...the leave in the lower left corner draws my eye away from the composition.

If you are using your camera on "auto" try some photos on manual, to fully control all aspects of your photography. Also, feel free to "help" nature along, by adjusting the leaves (or whatever) to achieve your goals.
3.
Since this dosent have any contrasting colors, you might want to try this one in Black & White
