On the "unnatural" front, it's the shadows that strike me that way, not the position of the leaves. The main leaf cast a shadow down towards us, so the main light source is above and in front. On that basis, I'm hard pushed to explain the shadows on the leading edges of the leaves.
I hadn't realised that you could see a larger image by clicking on it, so I hadn't noticed the blue/purple lines above the top leaf.
As to the relative positions, you can either change them in Photoshop, or you can change them by altering your camera position (assuming that you have the freedom to do so). The relative positions of fixed objects can be altered quite freely by changing the camera viewpoint. I have elsewhere demonstrated this fairly convincingly.
