Taken at my parent's house where they seem to get nice heavy frosts. I simply picked one leaf and breathed on it until the frost was gone.

S/H, Contrast, hue/sat layer to desat some colors, hue shift to make the yellow leaf red, USM, resize, USM, USM, border. BAM

No idea how this will do.

I was going to comment about it not being 4th, but timfy beat me to it. ;-) The shot's great, though. A lot of nice detail packed into 640 pixels.

I know you don't want to sell your ribbon formula (probably because you can't find it at the moment) so how much for that HM formula? :)

Best leaf image in the challenge. The frost on the leaves adds another dimension of interest that sets this apart. Well lit and processed, hope it's doing well for you.

This would have worked a little better for me first if there weren't so many other leaf entries and second if the lone leaf had a little more color. Still a decent entry, though....6

What a lovely composition and image! I love the colors, and I have to say the frost looks like powdered sugar...it's so pleasing to look at! I'm putting this into my favorites.

This illustrates the challange nicely and is also a lovely shot with the frost on the leaves. One of those shots that gets better and better the longer I look at it :-)
