This challenge was bit difficult for me to visualize. Looking at the various techniques for the golden ratio, I really wasn't able to come up with a real good definition. So I think this meets the challenge fairly well, let's hope the voters think the same.

When I left for work one day this week, the maple tree was still full of leaves. By the time I got home, every single leaf had fallen to the ground. At the time, the sun was setting and the house was casting a dark shadow on the scene. So I waited until the next morning to go out and get creative with the leaves and the pumpkins we had by the tree. This photo turned out to be one of my favorites, as I feel the pumpkin filled with leaves with the top off to the side is fairly unique (at least I haven't seen a photo like it).

Too much of the same colour here (even though the colours are nice) and for me personally it's not a very engaging subject. Nice light and sharpness though.

Good use of the rule. Appealing light and color.
