Thank you for the great replies but I am a bit perplexed. I made the leaf brighter in order to bring the viewers focus there, and not leave them hanging without a focus point.
Additionally, the brightness point on the leaf has an sRGB value 0f 230, thus quite a bit lower than the clipped max of 255, but do note I reduce the color palette to sRBG to allow for a smaller file size.
So, the brightness level is 230, and it provides a focus point for the viewer. How do you propose the image be, instead?
