Thanks so much for the comments. This is the leaf I used for these shots in March 2008.

I’d kept the leaf in a drawer in the kitchen and it didn’t look that good anymore but it still had such a lovely shape so I decided to use it again. I lay the leaf on a piece of wet glass which lay on a piece of yellow board, got the ripples by dripping water onto the glass sheet.
There are so many absolutely beautiful images in this challenge, I’m honoured to have such a super score.

You shoot so many in your kitchen, you should be shooting for the Cable TV's Food Channel.

One of my top picks of the challenge. The colortone is perfect for October. I love the close focus and the golden water. Very beautiful!

Well... I think the tight crop kinda works here, but I'm not too sure about the leaf itself... I don't know... something about it makes me wish it were shaped differently in the frame...

Very nice. I like it. OK I'm moving up to an 8, because my husband just stopped by and said "I'd give it more than a 7."
