Just some leaves I shot the other day.

I added some yellow, and also a bit of vignetting. There was a ray of light directed at the leaf, so there was some natural vignetting. I just increased it in PS.

All comments are most welcome! :)

Ah, I love looking at the leaf-covered grass at this time of year. You've captured the patchiness of sunlight typical of the season.

I would have loved to pick up and move the red leaf into that patch of light. My eye, at least, is drawn first to the red and second to the focused point of your image.

I'm no grass expert, but were some of the blades of grass actually that color, or was there some pp that was done to cause that cool grey (or, alternatively, wasn't done to correct it)? It almost looks like paint.

You should have focused on red leaf instead because it is contrast to everything else, other leaves are very similar in color to grass. If you wanted yellow one then you should have moved red one out of the frame because it is kind of distracting.

I agree with Nelepl. The red leaf would have been killer on its own. :D

Quite right. Didn't think about moving the red leaf at the time though.
