Date: Oct 24, 2003
Aperture: 4.5
ISO: 100

This is my second entry with the SD9. I don't really expect it to do well, but I do like the effect. "Grace" is a rather difficult subject to pin down...

Very nice clean picture. The shadow greatly enhances the effect. Good job.

I'm really starting to like these simplistic images. It's a classic with nice toning and sharp detail. The dof on the stem and far leaf is effective. Compositionally it's also great. A very nice clean image.

I like the brown tints, the shape and angle of the leave, resting on the small tips, and especially the shadows. Good one.

I had this shot sitting on 9 for a few days, but I had to bump it up to 10 after taking another look. One of the best and most imaginative autumn pics I've seen. Great minimalist feel. Lovely use of light and shadows. Perfect dof. I love the composition. The saturation is spot-on. Only the title doesn't do the photo justice. 10

Simple and very beautiful. I really like the title you gave it, and grace it is. :) 9

It does have graceful lines. The way that the leading point touches the surface and the other touch points are less obvious gives this a good floating feeling.

Simple but very effective picture. Very good "gracefulness".

Wonderful still life. I love the placement and the curves of the leaf--fits "grace" nicely.

Beautiful - a wonderful portrait of a fallen leaf - I like the composition, the shape and shadows, the angle within the frame, the warm black and white tone. An absolutely wonderful entry, one of my favourites in this challenge.

Just wonderful, great and simple. I like the shallow DOF and the simple color of the leaf. Did you use softboxes for lighting? Giving you a 10 and I hope it is gonna be one of the winners :-)

You are a pro so no way I will comment on this one. It is a miracle what one can do with a cam. I'm astonished. 10
