    Love it Debbie.
The effect you created on the leaf edges remind me of sugar coated leaves that are somtimes used as garnish in fancy resturants.

Beautiful colors and glorious light make this image sing.

Thank you, Irene. I was sorry to see the last wind bring down most of the leaves in my neighborhood along with a dusting of snow one night. Winter is on it's way...We usually get one good snow before Halloween around here.

So I found myself taken pictures of 'Fallen" leaves this afternoon. There is always something to take pictures of...Tommorow are the Emma Crafford Coffin Races which is an annual thing but we've not been before. Should be fun to watch and snap pictures of.

Aimee and Melissa - Thank you. This is one of my favorites. I love making leaves into abstracts. There is so much possibilities in them. Glad you liked it!

THANK YOU, ALL -- Just got home from a week in Florida and need to attend to unpacking and such. Was thrilled to come home to a win; especially this one. It was my favorite fall image! Now I get to cull out about 90% of all the photos I took at DisneyWorld; the not-so-fun part of the photo-taking experience!

Irene -- did you really have some chocolate for me? Yippee!

Dale, - Thank you. I really liked this image and was glad to see it get so far. I'm kind of sad to see the leaves gone but the bare trees with snow and frost make for good picture-taking, too.

Linda, I haven't heard from you for a while. It is about time to go "browsing" through some galleries because I am sure that you have submitted some stunning images. Things never seem to slow down around here so I've not gotten out to the galleries like I used to. Thank you for your kind comments and one of these days I will be "visiting" you!
