The Leaf

I've been wanting to post this for a few days now. I really like this one because it looks very artistic to me. I wasn't planning on it coming out like this. It was just one of those shots I took that surprised me when I uploaded it. Maybe it's just my own personal taste but i like it a lot.

I think it's so appealing because of the many parts of it. The mirror image of the leaf. The mottled greens. The reflection of the sunlight through the trees. Almost like a painting - like Monet. Beautiful.

Rosemarie - Thank you! I was hoping I wasn't being a little prejudiced with my own work. LOL! :-)

Hi,
It's official(since I'm an artist). This is definitely superbly artistic.
Now, I hope you know I am not being snotty or high and mighty. I'm partly kidding you, because it doesn't matter at all that I'm an artist! :)

Art is in the eye of the viewer. You feel it's artistic so it is for you.
I LOVE this photo from the background to the reflection to the composition to the colors.

I like it a lot too...and yes, it does look like art...like it's on a canvas. It's beautifully composed!
Well done!!

Gel - Art is in the eye of the beholder but it does matter to me that an artist likes it. Thank you!
;-)

June - Thank you! See, I thought it looked like it was on canvas too. :-) I think I'll print this one big for my wall.

Mary - Thank you as well. I am proud of it. :-)

Gaelyn, Guy D and Darla - Thank you all as well. I'm so glad that each of you took the time to comment and like it too.

What a beautiful peaceful picture. Looks like that leaf is on a mirror.

Don't you just love these surprises we take? That is so much a part of photography. Your photo is indeed very artistic and I love it. Frameworthy in fact.

A beautiful and mysterious photograph. I love the music that was playing on your blog when I arrived.

I really like this photo! Simple, yet there is so much to see. If I had it hanging on my wall, I do not think I would ever tire of it!
Thanks for sharing!
