Great shot and love the focus being on the one leaf. Love the story of the evolution of this photo and how just a few feet away you were close but not quite there.

Beautiful Nice work, great eye and excellent presentation. Hangin' in there....
Hi Wilson, I like the story ''behind the photo!'' I think there is a lot of good photos having a similar story, but the difference is the person behind the camera that's where you make the difference! Bravo
...and then... ...by half time, I was shooting leaves. This is 2 frames before I got the final version. This earlier shot was taken with the sun off about 30 degree to the bottom (this also answers Stephen and Alec's question, it was very sunny.) The final version had the sun right behind the leaf. ^_^
Lovely, must be a cloudy day to be able to capture it all on EV range.
Nice... Nice, very nice picture ! 7/7

Yes - works for me! I was actually expecting an image of some soccer players ... but this one is just fine, too! :-) Great use of backlighting without the resulting annoying shadows.
Hi Wilson DOF looks perfect to me...why do people feel everything needs to be in focus? I love the halo light....
Beautiful autumn sensation !
Agreeing with Linda's comment above. This is as near perfect as I have seen. I Love Fall!
This season will get fun with your pictures! Just perfect like it is.
I sure wish we had some good fall colors here in Fort worth but none. I really enjoy the colors here as well as the light radiating around the isolated leaf
Real nice composition on this Wilson.
You always have a way of perfect execution. Kudos. 7/7
Really, really nice!
7/5 Shall I give a rare A7, I think I just might, but I do have a soft spot for this kind of image. An O5, though, that's fair enough. Love the curve of the twig, concentrating on the single leaf, and the tones...mmm... that is an overcast sky, isn't it?, A classic, Canadian, image. Ahem... could never do this in the U.S., definitely not... impossible...
Simplicity is a beauty sometimes. Here is a proof. Weldone!
a very beautiful composition Wilson
Thanks so far for your feedback... Frankly, I just wanted to do one "non-manipulated" to help this fellow out . Darn it, this was from a "digital camera," so I guess it doesn't really count. ^_^ BTW, Stephen, Alec, not a single cloud was in sight, pretty much a full blast, sunny day, (had to hide the sun behind the leaf, almost took my right eye out!) We've been getting an unseasonably beautiful weather this past week and a half or so. Ivo, I intentionally choose f5.6 after checking through DOF-preview because anything smaller than that will make the background leaves all too sharp. Cheers. ^_^
wilson you have a serious problem. im sick of you constantly finding amazing photographs every direction you turn!
Very nice catch!
allways perfect! Wilson, I can only "click" on 7/7
nice 6/7 !!
Does it make sense to present the same theme taken at the same day when you are already presenting the "rules"? No - so my try will stay in the drawer while admiring your result... RE
Very nice composition, Wilson.

DOF Like it! You used very well the dynamic range of your camera. My suggestion is to use a slightly bigger DOF to get those leafs on the right in focus. Excellent work as usual. Cheers!
Spot on! Again, this is a little different from what I would expect. Having said that, the execution and content is spot on.
Well done Wilson.

Wison Looks like you and Regina Chayer where spying the same leaf! LOL. I love the DOF, color and the composition. It looks like the sun is behind the leaf, but then the sun on the foreground leaves is from behind you. How'd you give the leaf the nice glow? Nice selective effect of the glow.
Very nice! Its a really nice photo! The colours and the sharpness of the photo are very impressive! 7/7
wonderful color contrast and composition..
Very nice composition, beautiful light. Pnina
This is unusual for a Fall leaf shot - I like it! This also offers up possibilities of different crops, too, that would work equally as well. Nice composition!
Wow! Great shot! Great colours. Wonderful to see the fine structure of the leave and the light which surrounds it. Congratulations Wilson!7/7
simple and very nice image!!!!!!!

Great capture Just can't say anything more than you got it all right on this one. These past few days in Seattle have been great for fall photos.
Ladies and gents... ...thanks for your kind feedback. Appreciate them all. ^_^

A Sunny ... composition Wilson ...Beautiful !!
How It Started... Cristina, Chips, Paul, Nick, Wim, Masimo, Pitman, and Reiner, thanks for your feedback. Paul, just in case you weren't joking around, let me reassure you that it is indeed unmanipulated. I'll give you a pictorial run down. First, I was at my kid's soccer game (Lou Ann, here he is)...
Next... ...then I saw this tree behind a goal (this was at Lynnwood Sport Complex across the street from Alderwood Mall)...
great color, composition & light. so simple & yet so beautiful capture.
Great shot! I love this shot, the orange and blue work great together, and the white of the sun makes the background very interesting. Very nicely done.
Works for me.
"Sunny Leaf," Fall's Here Yet? No manip, works for you? Taken this morning on a crisp, sunny autumn morning. Would like to hear your feedback, thanks. ^_^
