This is an image of shape and form; the content being a leaf is only secondary to what I was trying to achieve ...levels, curves, layer adjustments, usm, cloned out a few hot spots and a small mark in leaf, cropped.

I love this shot. I don't understand why it wasn't rated higher. Really nice work.

Interesting lighting, and I like the rich color. There are small spaces where there is great detail in the texture, and I wish that were true of more of the leaf.

This is one of my favorite photos for this challenge :-) It looks like a dancer. The title you chose really perfectly expresses what the photo says to me. Detail and lighting on the leaf is beautiful.

great lighting in the photo, its a really abstract way of shooting leaf but i like it, it has an interesting form to it.

First Violin
(for Helen)

On your shoulder the fiddlehead shadow
plays until the darkness of the hollow
sound box rises from your lap to the grip
of your neck.

With a swoop of the bow,
you starkly denote the silence
that frames the adagio.
