sunlit leaf

By vonny  
I was taking my nephews for a walk in the woods with their dog (bandit) when i spotted this leaf resting on the branches ,i just liked the way the sun light hit it .
I'm not to sure about the frame took the colour from the leaf but maybe black would have been better .What do you think?
Thanks for looking.

I like the light and colours in this shot Yvonne. As with last nights upload, the crop is spot on too. The frame looks fine to me as it is.

Where are the clicks ? This is a wonderful image and seasonal to boot. A good composition with the stem coming from the top left and beautiful colours in the leaf itself. I think the frame is fine Yvonne. This is one of your best.

I like the diagonal angle of the leaf and its stem from top left to bottom right, and the curve in the stem. The curve reminds me of Hogarth's line of beauty. I also like the smattering of green which was once the colour of the leaf but it's now like yellow parchment. The only thing of distraction is the black twig across the leaf; if only it was behind (but then the leaf might fall). Clever of you to spot the subject and take the shot, Yvonne. Sorry, not impressed by the frame; it does take away from the photo. Keep taking photos of what pleases you.

My only problem with this is that the background is a bit confusing.

A very tired but attractive autumn leaf in a natural seeting.
Well seen and very well taken.
