The lower left object is the star Regulus (Alpha Leonis).

It doesn't look like a star to me. It may be hard to zoom in with this small 150 kb. file. I checked it on the full size file and it looks like a greenish blue ball with barely visible surface or cloud details. Due to the color I thought it could be Venus, but I saw an earlier eclipse photo (2008?) in this gallery with Mercury visible and it had about the same color.
