Another of my leaf images.
Many thanks for vs & cs for Leaf on the Wall.
Seems I'll need to go back and get a sharper image of the wee house -
despite using a tripod I still managed to get it out of focusBlush
All I need now is a witch to visit the dwelling!

"All I need now is a witch to visit the dwelling!"
Pass - too easy.

What good inspiration to link the leaf with a wooden artifact, Kate.
Makes a good picture.

V1 has a lovely haunting quality about it, with the open space of forest in the background. A nice composition.

Go for the more natural look with V1 Kate.
And how do filter images go down at your club ?
They do not go down well at mine.
I think they just consider them too ''gimmicky'' !!
