a leaf from an oak tree outside my office... it's beautiful in the sunshine, but i think yesterday may have marked the turning point. after a week of sunshine and 70 degrees, today is overcast and cool and tomorrow's forecast is rain...

Really like this photo.
It's simplicity is it's greatness.
You've isolated the essence of the fall season.
Thanks.

Beautiful. How did you get the totally dark background? And keep the leaf so vibrant and sharp.

thanks, Jerry. i laid the leaf on a black fabric background, took the pic, then used the Burn tool in Photoshop to darken the background and eliminate any traces of fabric texture, lint, etc...

Thanks for the reply Rocky. I was stunned by it. I couldn't help but wonder.Being new at this, I would not have thought of doing this. I sure have a lot to learn, that is why I really enjoy this forum, besides, most of all, the great people.
