A weekend trip to the in-laws gave me time (and trees) to play around with this challenge. My original idea was to desaturate the background leaves in each frame, but once I got the individual pictures finished, I felt the color backgrounds gave it more punch.

Hope everyone likes this one as much as my wife and I do...


post challenge :

Wow. Thanks everyone for the comments and votes. Among this caliber of competition, I'm quite happy with anything in the top 10.

And to the beautiful soul who put this on their wish list, the 5x7's of each leaf should be available to purchase soon...

I love how the colors are arranged in this. Reminds me of an almost rock-papper-scissors succession. The green of the first leaf becomes the background for the second panel. The yellow of that the background for the third, and the red of the third the background for the first. Pulls me right into the picture, directing my eyes left to right and back to the beginning again. That having been said, I think the thickness of the borders is a bit of an obstruction - something slightly thinner and maybe lighter might make this more powerful. Someone suggested a dark brown.

One of my favorites.

Very well done. I love the colours and the textures. Would look very nice plaque mounted, bottom weighted to allow for a Title and Signiture.

This is lovely - the only thing I don't really like is that border is black. I think a more natural looking color (perhaps dark brown?) would complement this better.

Very neat with a splashing visual presentation. 7

I am actually increasing my score. I like the composition on this more and more as I look at it. Well done.

6 - Nice. Good coloring. Criticism; not much, not sure on the 'base' choice of leaf for the middle shot/#2, doesn't seem to 'fit in' with the others, color yes but the shape/type no, in my opinion. More definition in the 'top' leaves especially, would also have made this better in my opinion. Up to 6 from 5.

Very effective use of colours, shapes, textures, which each compliment one another. To me, this 'links' each frame, and this really answers the triptych theme.

Simple and clever. The colors work together perfectly
Good luck!

great colors!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

the middle one is a bit too "posed" while the two others work quite well, in my humble opinion.
good luck

I like the idea of using different colored leaves for the background to porvide contrast.

great contrast...10

Nice idea, I like the color combinations. A touch too sharp for me though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Doesn't autumn big a beautiful array of colours. And you used them very nicely. I would have liked to have seen the green in the center match the bightness of the green single leaf, since they appear to be the same kind of leaf.

This is one of my favorites! Beautiful colors.

LOVE the colors and textures. The leaves pop right out and then bring your attention to the other leaves beneath them.

Nice contrasts. I like it as an abstract. The reds would have been better with a polarizer I think. The glare is a little muddy looking. 7

Very nice, love the constrasts of color and it flows very nicely with the round leaves on the outside. I like how you used the opposite leaves as the backgrounds. Well done.

nice!

This is a nice composition - well executed. I could see this in a poster shop or on a wall somewhere. Looks like it may have been a touch over sharpened, but still a striking picture.

One of the 2-3 best of the "designer" shots. Very organic triptych, nice work with colors and forms. I hope you do well. SO many entries seem to be accidental triptychs, as it were; no special reason for them to be triparite except the challenge theme.
