From a distance your photograph of a fall leaf looks almost abstract. Nice capture!

This really is exceptional . . these are out there in their millions for almost every one of us in the northern hemisphere right now and I'm sitting here thinking 'why didn't I do this?' !

Again, there are so many ways (as other comments have noted) to enjoy your work: As abstract composition and mix of color; to contemplate the way chlorophyll shuts down in the leaf; like a satellite photo of a city or other landscape. I need to figure out why the holes "bug" me, what about me sees them as an imperfection.

@David Ross: Thanks for your comments! I delayed posting this image because the black spots bugged me, too.

Ed Heaton from United States

Exquisite! Proof, every leaf tells a story, and yours is a magnificent story.
The details, colors, light, textures, the image itself has me at a loss for words.
