we had quite a blustery night last night, and the wind and rain continued today. i hadn't been outside, other than to work and back, all day. when i got home this evening, and opened the back door to let one of my cats out, i saw this leaf lying on the rain-soaked deck, and liked the contrast between the colors of the leaf and the dark, dreary, wet wood... taken in natural light - such as it is this time of year - at about 4:15 PM. aside from resizing and a touch of sharpening, this is straight from the camera... 40D with 17-35mm lens at 24mm, 1/50 @ f4.5...

......very nice! I like this, on my monitor (21" 4x3 ) the photo is so natural in color and composition. Believe it or not my favorite part is the deck. The leaf causes the background to look perfect, especially the water 'puddles'. You did well with this, thanks for sharing.

Very nice. Seems as though it would make a good background for a travel brochure for Canada. Nice shot, simple but elegant.

I'd enter that one in a contest. Isn't it really nice when photo opps like this present themselves. Thanks for posting it.
