Ad campaign: Turning over a new leaf

Challenge #77 in the The Art Director series. Hosted by jezsik.
Challenge has finished
The clients are about to make major changes to their business and need an image for their campaign. They want a photograph of a leaf, a NEW leaf, not a dead leaf or a dying autumn leaf. The photo must be of a leaf, not a pile of leaves or a flower with a visible leaf, but a clear and obvious leaf. An image with a few leaves are OK, but the idea is to turn over a new leaf, not leaves. The leaf should be the sort of leaf we commonly recognize as a leaf, not an unusual, special purpose leaf that requires the consultation of a botanist.
