[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Dead leaves are somehow fascinating by their coloration and the different shapes they can have.
These were floating in a basin just close to different trees, mixing the species with some kind of natural balance.
The brown ones should be leaves from a Maple tree, the yellow one from a Fagus-species (Beech) and the smaller brown one from an Oak-tree. The little green one should be from some shrub, but I don't know which species. The whole forms a kind of still-life which caught my eye.

Hello Anne,
Nice artistic photo in beautiful contrasting colours and a good choice of composition.

hello Anne\very nice picture with great colours and good sharpness
i like this composition
thanks greeting lou

Hallo Anne,
anhand deiner Beschreibung sieht man gleich, dass du dich mit den Pflanzen bestens auskennst. Mir gefällt hier das Herausarbeiten der Farben mittels Blitzlicht besonders gut. Auch die diagonale Bildgestaltung ist sehenswert, wie auch die gute Schärfe. Mit der künstlerischen Darstellung von diesem Stillleben hast du auch meinen Geschmack gefunden, mein Kompliment.
Beste Grüße,

how nice and simple this natural set up is! Good evening dear Anne! I love the shapes and the earthy colors of this image. I was thinking of removing those tiny white spots in the black background, but then this may look like a studio shot and then the image will lose its natural appeal...so love it the way it is!

Salut Anne!
C'est bel ensemble de feuilles mortes que ton art a mis dans cette jolie photo.

Bien aprovechados los elementos para crear una pequeña obra de arte.
Buena disposición de las ojas y elegante conytraste con el fondo.

Hi Anne,
Pur art MF!... Pure Art!... Like a poem made with leafs!

Bonjour Anne,
C'est une image exquise! Elle démontre une grande netteté et la composition est vraiment superbe. J'aime bien bien l'arrière-plan foncé qui a comme effet d'enrichir les couleurs des feuilles. Je ne connais pas bien l`histoire de l'art et beaucoup au sujet des différents styles, mais je trouve le résultat de cette approche particulièrement plaisant.
