Autumn, pure and simple

I spotted this hazel leaf lying on our lawn as I hung the washing out on the line this afternoon and thought it might make a good autumnal image. I decided to treat it very simply, using some white paper as a background and illuminated with just the overcast light coming through my music room window.

Sorry that I'm going backward on your posts! But, as good as this one is, the follow-up is even more superb!

It's simply magnificent, the texture and the colors contrasting magnificently well with the white bottom. It adds to the luminosity

I approve of the simple treatment... it's so crisp that it looks like it's levitating off the background
