    This is the first thread I'm making that showcases any of my work. I am really proud of this photograph. I'm a beginner, and it all happened by accident! I really love it; I am so proud!

    Thanks for any comments!

    Isn't it nice when photos taken by mistake come out to your liking anyway? I like the way the one leaf "glows" in the sun, and the shadow of its neighbor behind it.

    It would also be interesting to see this shot as a two different portrait-sized ones (vs. landscape), one with the left side cropped a bit, then one with the right side (sun) cropped. I think you could play around with this one and get several nice perspectives.

    ;)

    Rather good image, IMO. I think I would have cropped out a the sun, 'cause for me it ruins a bit of the idea.

    I also second the idea of cropping a bit around, just to see what you get.

    And you! Welcome to the board mate, good to have you here. :)

    I think you've got a good eye for a beginner, its definately a shot to be proud of. I would tend to agree with the other comments; experiment around with cropping the image. Thanks for sharing (and making me jealous of summertime)

    I like the golden fringe of the leaves and the shadows

    Cropping the sun? but the sun looks great. if the sun wasnt there it would just be a photo of leaves. i think the sun's position in the photo is great as i for one deteste photos which have the subject in the centre.

    I think it works the way it is. I like the lens flare and the detail in the leaves
