There is a big aspen tree in my garden and my twin sons had collected a part of the leaves in the garden and made a huge leaf out of hundreds of smaller ones. I put an old violin cello, kid size, on the leaf and this is the outcome. Everybody´s talking about the autumn symphony or serenate these days so I thought the sound of the leaves would be approiate for this season of the year, at least in my part of the world.

Unbelievable! So classy. The golden light and yellow colors create such a distinct, glorious atmosphere. I am reminded of autumn winds, storms, and old dusty attics, full of exciting treasures.... superb shot!

Nice picture Gunnar. Shows the beautiful colors of the Icelandic fall in an interesting way.

A grayish tone, IMO would be better to adjust levels on this one.

Nice, but framed a bit further to viewer left may have been good, though I see this is where the leaves end.

Very nicely composed and executed. Stopping the leaves on the left was a nice touch. Is it your cello?

Great photo, this is just different enough and has a great look. The exposure seems to fall off on the left a bit.7

Clever and different. Points just for that really. Extra for clarity, colour, texture, crumply leaves, and the contrast of objects.

This is really cool but the eyebolt at the bottom of the instrument stands out like a sore thumb. Building up the leaves on the bottom of it to cover this would clean this up a lot. Very good shot.

very nice!

Nice idea. Think it would be a bit beter without the leave on the violin. At least not on the f-holes. You really want to show the f-holes on a violin shot, they make the instrument. Good luck!
