I love this shot. The smallness of the leaf is a very good fit with the title, and the halo of light behind it accentuates it.

Great picture and great title, too.

I love this shot. It has such a dark mood to it due to the colors. I look forward to seeing some more photos from you in the future.

What an absolutely superb pic.
I have read a few of the comments and agree that the score does not do the picture justice.
Great work..well done.

Thanks to everyone that voted. I was surprised that the shot didn't do better, but many of the shots I liked were down in the upper middle of the pack. Thanks for the comments and suggestions, I am trying learn and any feedback helps :)

I like what you are going for here but with all of the brightly blurred background, the clear small leaf gets kind of lost in the shuffle. I'd like to see it better against a more subdued background perhaps. I think the impact would work if the background were solid white or black.

Oh my gosh!!! I can't believe this didn't do better...this is my absolute favorite out of all the photos!!!

I hope you will consider making this photo available for Prints...

Nice entry for minimalism! Is this on the water? Can't really tell. Unusual use of focus / lack thereof. I like this. 7

Looking at the thumbnail I thought.... Gee, I'm gonna hate this... then I saw the leaf. I really like this. Very creative. I just wish the leaf was a little sharper. Overall, good capture

Wonderful image. This is really beautiful. Bumping to a 10.

Title meets challenge well and the concept of the shot is great with a frree floating object being the only thing in focus. I think it would have been even better if the leaf was bigger in the shot but maybe not. Good pic.

fantastic bokeh
  Photographer found comment helpful.

potentially this is a great image - but very much hurt by the size limitations.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the softness of the background, but I find the large dark area on the left a bit distracting. The title fits well and good concept.

Brilliant, great use of light, hope you do well...10

Whoa! Great background, with such a sharp leaf - top marks, but it's a shame the leaf is so small. I'd have taken it slightly more out of centre, perhaps cropping the top & left off.

i like the impressionism

Did you really catch that as it was falling!? Wow! This is an amazing picture. You should be proud.

Outstanding freeze. The balance between light and dark, focus and OOF is sublime

This is really well done, gotta love the bokeh!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/29/2005 01:00:45 PM
This is poetic. I would much prefer the lttle leaf to be away from the center, but the effect of the shallow DoF and the backlight is very good.

I wish I knew what the little thing is. The background is awesome, like some sort of impressionist painting. Cool colors and mood you have going here.
