Golden on Pond

Fall in the Pacific Northwest is a beautiful thing. this shot was taken at the McLane Nature Trail in Olympia, Washington. While it was a blah afternoon I managed to find a shot by dropping my eyes and scanning the waters edge.

Nice variety of colors, shapes and textures. The outer leaves seem to be a frame for the spotted maple leaf which is glowing. Glad you saw this.

Great colors with the composition right on. Love the varying colors on the leaves that stand out against dark background.

Ben: Welcome to Flora and thanks for a fine first post here. I especially like the light and subject. My only suggestion would be to crop this tighter on both sides to give the leaf a bit more prominence. Great to have you aboard and looking forward to more of your work. >=))>
