brown leaf on a skylight taken from below with white sky behind and splattered drops of water on the window. Reversed the image and punched the contrast to extreme for simplicity just to see what might happen.

I'm going through the entries, stopping at those images I feel have had the benefit of an unconventional eye and dwelling a little longer to try to see and appreciate what you saw. This is one of those images.

Positives: This is certainly bold! The 2 bit colour depth reduces the scene to its most basic form - this isn't without appeal to some.

Critical stuff: The image is extreme enough to appear cynical - I think that is a problem. Although the outline shape has a certain appeal, this really isn't an attractive image and as a consequence it is hard to like. It doesn't communicated much story or much else to me other than your photographic will - perhaps that was your intention.

Overall: You obviously not submitted this with then intention of pleasing the masses but even with my most interpretivistic hat on I'm coming up short when trying to appreciate this image.

Interesting idea. Almost looks like a photogram.

At first this looked like a Maple type leaf but on closer inspection perhaps itís white ceiling paint carelessly dropped onto a black table :-)

Itís hard to recognise as a photo but comes across as an amazing image.
