Nicely shot, shadows on objects that create shadows themselves...

Very nice! I have become intimately familiar with leaf photos lately :) I like the color and the constrasts provided by the shadows here... excellent idea and great job of getting the image :) - jmsetzler

I like this style of photography.
It's a very nice clear image with beautifull shadows, but I find the white corner at the bottom-right distracting. Nevertheless, very well done.

Beautiful colors and great idea. I wish I could put my finger on what's not quite right to me. I think it might be the sky...maybe I'd like it better with leaves and shadows only or just less sky. I also can't decide if the holes in the leaves add realism and character or if they detract from the shadows. Lotta help I am!

Well-captured. I like this idea very much.

I like the luminense (spelling?) of the leaves here. Good contrasts between green and shadows.

White area in bottom right is a bit distracting but overall well done. Good shadows with natural subjects. Good focus and depth of field.

nice idea....and interesting pattern created by the shadow. Also like the use of color

Very nice - I always have a tremendous amount of difficulty with the contrast and exposure - Darn that purple fringing!

Very nice, I like the interplay between the shadows and the back lit leaves, but I think you are looking up, right? Sun is shining bright? Last week, I ranted about sky shots not being blue and several really nice people responded with suggestions. I think a really blue sky background would have raised this up a couple more notches, if it were possible. The third color contrast would have really excited me (white is the absense of color).

I really like how the light and dark overlay each other...
