Stunning. The dark leaf is placed perfectly along the vein of the lighter one.

Thanks Carmen and Susie - Susie I haven't posted the colour one yet, I wondered if my description would be confusing.

Malcolm, I hadn't noticed that, so not intentional. I just moved it around until I liked the position.

Simple, but very effective. Makes a change from coloured version and the balance works for me.

Deserves EC just for being so unusual (as well as for the fact it's superb!)

Wow, thanks everyone and Pete for the EC. As I say started phtographing the coloured leaves, but when I looked at them on the screen it was as has been said something we've all seen before.

I didn't want to desaturate the whole image, so started playing around with toning. Originally the whole image and then using two different tones. Liked the effect so put it up.

Was a difficult choice because I have so many images I want to upload at the moment.

You know now I look at this again, it is reminding me of another image, really weird.

Nice variant from the usual leaf shot we will see plastered across the pages of amatuer magazines, ad nauseum in the coming months.

Great use of their subtle shades.

Looks like one of those things I've completely forgotten the name of where you put the leaves onto photographic paper and leave it in the sun. I'm sure you know what I mean!
Excellent work!

Beautiful tones Cheryl. I don't know if it was delibrate, but I like the way the point of the dark leaf lines up with the vein on the lighter leaf.

Simple and elegant.

Not entirely Ian, just looked pleasing, but I hadn't noticed the context of why. If you see what I mean.

Thanks everyone for the comments
