Nice pattern, but all in all the picture is quite boring.

Good pattern. Having that light color leaf really gives you an idea on the color and depth of the brick.

The leaf adds interest to the pattern, and makes a nice focal point.

The maple leaf really finishes the photo! I love it!

Like the leaf to break the patterns with another pattern and give scale to the bricks. Muted colors work well too.

Great detail, DOF, colors, composition, and the leaf is perfection. Too many patters in this challenge lack a captivating subject. Thanks for giving us something to look at.

I'm probably in the minority here, but I wish the leaf weren't there. For me, it's distracting from the pattern of the bricks, which appeal to me more than the pattern on the leaf. But great colors, textures and composition, of course.

Very good shot because it's so simple, like the solidity of the bricks and fragility of the leaf. 8

this could have been better if you had chosen a more interesting subject.

great use of pattern as the background so the leaf really stands out

very good definition of color, and the leaf really offsets the pattern theme in a good way.

Nice composition, but I wish the cigarette butt wasn't there.
