Less is best...

By NDODS    
Thank you all for your most gracious comments following yesterdays minimalistic image, keeping the theme going slightly I have opted to upload another rather less is best image showing a small dead and decaying leaf on top of a concrete pillar. Nothing flash, nothing spectacular just a leaf on a lump of concrete.

Please except my apology if I did not get around to seeing and comment on all of your work, not a good day health wise.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead.

Regards NathanGrin

Yip we're all seeing a mouse here.
I'm not sure if total focus on the leaf would be better?
Interesting image and good colours.

A prime example of the turning of the seasons again. A nip in the air these morning and evenings and the warm shirts are getting dug out again.

This is the kind of shot I like SmileSmile But am often too lazy to take it Sad

I love fallen leaves. Not all. Some I find snapworthy, others not. Some are fresh, some semi-dried, some totally dried.

This one is a nice one for all that texture and the angle is SUPERB, Nathan.
