Loved this shot when voting. Looks like it was shot in studio but I know it wasn't. Just beautiful.

Congrats. Lovely picture.

Maybe just a little too perfect - I'm hoping you at least picked up the leaves 47 steps from where you live. At any rate, it is lovely photography - perfect lighting, composition, and depth of field. Even your water drops are clean and perfect!

Hey Raj, Congrats for one more. Excellent focus, colors and exposure.

Impressive shot. Congrats on the yellow ribbon. Makes me reconsider Tamron as a viable option.

I see perfectly ordered artistic arrangements all the time in the streets where I live. Just the other day I walked past some pebbles, beautiful colours and shapes, and they had miraculously arranged themselves into the most aesthetically pleasing fill-the-frame composition I'd ever seen.

Congrats on your ribbon. I tried a shot just like this for the foliage challenge and I couldn't get it to work out. Glad someone did, it's beautiful.

This is a very appealing shot, but it looks posed. For me, and this is just a personal opinion, it goes against the spirit of the challenge. I had to take a couple of points off for that.

Great arrangement of leave, spectacular colour.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2009 03:24:24 PM
gorgeous shot. the range of colors is great. my one criticism is that it feels a little too staged for my taste
  Photographer found comment helpful.
11/15/2009 02:09:03 PM
This is gorgeous.....I bet if it were in the foliage challenge it would come in 1st place.....lets hope it finishes well here too. My #1 pick.

Simple and lovely.

Very nice colors and forms, and nice crisp processing that pops. One of my 10s and a favorite in the challenge. Giving you the benefit of the doubt that you found all those leaves 47 steps away from your door, and the droplets too!

This is a superb photograph. I love the juxaposition of colours, tones, textures, crisp raindrops,symmetry & balance. It is still & invites study & review & it is at the same time diagonally dynamic. Kudos all around on this beautiful Autumn sonata, one of my definite favourites.
