Congratulations on your Posthumous Red! Really is a nice take on the challenge, and a very lovely photograph on its own.

Stunning pointillism. I give this the Posthumous Red Ribbon.

I love the effect you have achieved with this rather unusual processing. Like a fine Japanese pencil drawing on rice paper with lovely soft pastel colors. The inclusion of some yellows and orange colors would have strengthened the feeling of autumn.

I like the contrast here with the white/biege areas on the bottom and the dark trees on the left. However, the folige is kind of lost in the white highlights and is not really as interesting as the other parts of the image.

On your way to Sesame Street? ;-) Not a jaw-dropping sort of image but I like the patterns of the leaves on the trees.
