I have been holding back in posting some fall photos because I have been sharing some scenic shots from this last August while hiking in BC and in the USA.
This fall shot came to my attention while noticing the purple maple leaf while falling to the ground ended up on this yellow leafed branch...hence almost fallen..Enjoy!

I am curious on what was the aperture here. This is an excellent shot! The dof, the colours are perfect. I would suggest an alternative title like 'The last leaves' similar to that O Henry short story. Wish the purple leaf was facing the camera though!

This is a colorful image that may have appeared more pleasing if you would have taken this as a diagonal from bottom left to top right as the background, though out of focus, is so busy.
I do like the idea of the leaves as they are very sharp and have very nice texture and color...

What a splendid image of the maple leaves — the purple one especially standing out against its golden neighbors. The veins are distinct and well defined, a the overall perspective and composition — all first rate.
Warm regards, Paul,

Good DOF keeping the leaves in focus with a soft BG. My only comment would be to clone out the light spot in the bottom right otherwise a great shot Paul.

Nice closeup here of these colorful autumn leaves - and I like the surprise element of the stranger amongst friends. Nice composition and good use of depth of field to blur the background. Excellent work and TFs. Gerald

Hey Paul. I was an idiot and dropped my laptop and am just getting back up and running now. Looking at this style shot makes me want to try it myself. It's great the way the light is hitting the top of the leaf. Beautiful shot Paul!

Lovely composition with very good and attractive colours. Your choice of putting the branch in a horizontal position goes very well with the fallen leaf and gave a very restful feeling. I also like the droplets and the details on the back of the purple leaf. Well done!!
Have a nice weekend.
