Beautiful. Great colors. The burned wood makes a wonderful background.

Matt, the colors here, especially in the leaf, are excellent. The textures in the leaf and in the burned wood work together very well.

Terrific colors and contrast. The slight blue tinge in the burned wood is a nice touch. Whether arranged or serendipitous, these little scenes are irresistible. Have you played with the luminance sliders in the HSL to see if there is a little richness than can be teased out in the leaf?

I knew the was your image before I saw your name. Really like this one, Matt. Great contrast in patterns and colors.

Thanks @Jim_Gavin | @Mark_Seaver | @Kris_Smith - the color separation was what I was really going for with this one, and I think the blue / orange / red / yellow combos work pretty good!

I can see why!

A wonderful image, Matt! The composition, shapes, colors and patterns are just amazing. I also really like that the leaf is not perfect, but have some damages. Just a very minor issue and of course a matter of personal taste, I would have liked the LLC to be a tad sharper. However, this is of no importance, the image is just fantastic!

Thanks Ola! Yeah, that was one thing I wished I had done too. I am pretty sure I missed that when I was focus stacking. Oh well! :slight_smile:

It happens to me too often:)
