Thanks for the kind support.
I spend most of my time surrounded by natural beauty and I like to think that most of us can notice this and comment on colours, textures, shadows and light through different eyes.
My job introduces me to many miracles of life and one fact remains that man can never re-create, mould or copy nature no matter how hard we try. Not even dead leaves which are like a finger print.
These leaves fell from a tree that was planted the same year as the Titanic set sail on her maiden voyage.
Just a fact.
Would make a great wall paper!! Well done!!!
I also gave it an "Excellent", though I'm no photographer nor art-critic. Seems to me the brilliance of this kind of photo is 'seeing' a picture in a natural setting or happening. I don't want to start a big hoo-hah, but I think the criticism is out of place in this sort of (fishing) website, and I don't want to read it.
I definately have to agree with Martin on this one. Try and ask yourself: am I really looking at the image when I find myself counting the leaves (sheeps?) or am I just surfing by hoping to find something spectacular?
I really like the graphical style of the picture.
I think that great photography is: When you find a very common motif and portray it, in a way that makes it look constructed ( in other words you put your "signature" on the picture). And then when you look at the printed image, and in the beginning the picture looks too good to be true. But then you realize that the whole thing is actually just that common situation, it just looked too good to be true.
I think you're a bit unfair there. I think it's a very nice picture that shows one of these little details that we tend to overlook. This one is even technically very well done with sharpness and a lot of texture and reflections. I like such pictures and have already given it an "Excellent".
Oh, man this is boring. I can count 22 light leaves and 14 dark leaves. That is 34 leaves total. I'll leave you with 2.
