    Hmmmmm....

    I think it's the greys that are throwing me off.

    And perhaps the leaf is a little too centered....

    Cheers, Don

    Thanks for the comment. I have to admit that I am somewhat ambivalent about this picture. I think it is the ambiguity of the image that I like and the grayness adds to that feeling of solidity of the crusted ice. Since there is nothing to offset the leaf, placing it off center doesn't seem to add to the compositional strength, IMO, so I used the diagonals. Still, I'm not completely comfortable with the image and appreciate this comment and others that might provide insight into how this treatment of the image is perceived. The thumbnail is a little more traditional. Thanks again.

    I do find the traditional rendering more appealing. I can imagine fall is fading/sinking into winter.

    Again, I still find the third element of the greys distracting, perhaps something like this ?
