Inverted maple leaves on a wooden table. Used ambient light, camera on tripod. The leaf on top is turned upside down so the vein-y side is up.

Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that meets the challenge well.

I like the idea and the negative shadows but I am not convinced with the end result. Iím unsure why you have used the larger leaf with the reversed leaf on top? I think this would have worked so much better with just the reversed leaf in the lower right hotspot rather than the large leaf which for me just confuses the whole issue. I do like the diagonal grain of the wood and that is another reason why I think the smaller leaf would have been so much stronger and simpler and therefore more effective.
