Hmmmm....well it is colorful. I cut a whole in the leaf around the coin. I put some Stik-Tak putty on the front of the coin and stuck to a piece of thin blue poster board. I put more putty around the circumference of the coin and then laid the leaf on it. I had to patch some tears in the leaf and used small bits of the part of the leaf that I had cut out. A little tedious but it looks better than the one I tried earlier today on black poster board. Enjoy.

I personally might have chosen a different background color - perhaps a neutral red or copper color - something that would compliment the beautiful colors of the leaf. But great lighting and focus.

Without the shadows at the top of the pic, I feel this would really pop more, as if the leaf were floating or falling. Very clever, though.

Background color doesn't seem to fit with subjects. Photo is very sharp - good focus.
