The Leaf

Contributed by D Meadows

The Leaf - This picture was taken on a walk with my dogs. It didn't really seem like much of a picture until I was able to bring out some detail in the leaf and then the color in the road that I enjoyed it more. Edited: exposure, color and saturation.

I like this photo because of the color and saturation in the leaf. The exposure and color change were all good ideas. Great job. - SPHS W.H.

I really like the strong colors of this picture. I like the white and black of the road. It really stands out against the coloring of the leaf. I also like the way that the leaf is more to the right of the photo. Great job!

Dude,
This picture is so cool. I love the contrast between the road and the leaf, and the position of the leaf is perfect. I love how the edges of the leaf seem to be burnt. Very impressive picture.

The contrast of the colors of this picture is really cool. Although simple, really pretty.

This picture kinda makes me sad. I think this picture represent death because of the colors on the leaf and the position of the leaf, other than death i also think it represents old life....the past

This picture is so cool! Since the background is the ground and has marble in it, it makes the leaf stand out. The leaf is oldish looking and kind of dried out. I think that is why it makes it stand out in the picture.

This is a great picture and very simple. Great job of rule of thirds. The color is great and i love how you can see the gold color of the leaf in the pavement.

I like how the leaf in this picture stands out from the black and white rocks. The rocks really caught my attention and they almost seem to shine like a diamond. The leaf looks washed up like it's been through a hard time. In addition, the leaf looks old and burnt. Rule of thirds in pretty good in this photo. Very nice job on this photo! :)

The adjustments you made to this work was nice. To me it seems like the pavement is absorbing the leaf. However, I think that picture would have looked a bit better if there wasn't so much area shown around the leaf. Regardless it's a nice photograph and nice job.

You did a good job on positioning the leaf according to the rule of thirds. I liked how you brought out the color in the road as well. However, you could do more to make the leaf stand out a little more, like making it brighter or something like that.

The biggest thing that I noticed here was the contrast between the leaf and the road. Both are darker colors that should not stand out, but the leaf does for some reason. The focus is great and it just stuck out to me.

In this picture I really like how you used the different textures between the gravel and the leaf. The way you utilized the rule of thirds makes for a captivating picture. The lighting really could have been brighter it would have looked that much better.

The beauty in this image is very simplistic which makes it very original. I can see the adjustments in contrast and color saturation, but I believe without it the photo wouldn't be what you have made it evolve into. The darker colors make it mysterious. I like how you have a road and a leaf together, it's like combining nature with infrasctructure. Creating beauty with two opposites. Amazing work.

The contrast in the picture is very nice. It allows the leaf to pop out and get the viewer's attention. It is slightly depressing, making me think of death because of the darkened area of the leaf. but, it's a very good picture

I really like the color you brought out in the leaf, but I think you should have used a different angle instead of straight on.
