I am pretty new to your work but I can already say that I really like it! The contrast in this picture is more than amazing. You are quite skillful with a camera. I love how you made the water almost look "frozen" by using a very fast shutter speed.

I also noticed that the whole picture is in focus, which is something that attracts me allot. Another important fact about this picture is that the leaf is not centered which gives a more natural effect to the picture. Another very nice aspect of this photograph is that the water seems almost to become fully unsaturated at the bottom, which in my opinion makes the "teal" color of the water jump even more out of the screen.

In conclusion, I have nothing bad to say about this photograph as it is truly a wonderful picture!

Funny to see that. Yesterday I did almost the same thing and experimented some shots of the autumn style. (There's a local contest, but I'm mostly doing that for fun).

Well, your shot is extraordinary, in its simplicity and wonderful composition. The background is rich in textures and colours and leads our eyes to the red leaf. I so dig in this.

It seems to be caught in more than just the wind... rather all recognisable elements... particularly water. Fabulously executed, Shawn :hug:

Tried to make it a balance if them all, the Fire of the leaf is rather vague though.

It's fair to say I risked my neck to hike to the place I shot this, I'm happy it turned out well enough to be worth it imo. Thanks :smooch:
