Wonderful phtograph, Patricia, I love the subtle color and the loneliness of the 'leaf'. Very well done - Allan

Thank you, Carolyn, Sanjay, Colette, Adilson, Joy, Allan, Claudia, Char, Karma, Wendy, Dan and Dale! What's interesting is that I didn't specifically do selective coloring here. I applied a certain sepia filter that created this look. And then used another filter for the chalk-like look of the water. :-)

What an excellent combination of effects to achieve this result, Patricia, they add such a creative spin to a very traditional autumn image!

Thanks so much, Carol, Murry, Susan, Terry, Stephen and Darren!

Murry, I guess I'm dense but I don't understand what you mean. :-) Do you mean that the color of the leaf looks like American cheese? :-) Here's the original, unaltered photo so you can see the true color of our California leaves. LOL!

Thank you, Susan, Terry, Dan, Stan, Char, K, Kath, Joy, Marta, Murry, Donna, Allan, Wendy and Carol! I'm sorry I won't have time to browse through all the great finalists and send my congratulations, but I'm off to Hawaii for a week.

Mahalo (thank you) to everyone offering their congratulations in my absence!

Aloha! -- Patricia (aka Pakelekia, Patricia in Hawaiian)

Belated thanks, Darren, Karen, Evy, Sanjay, Claudia, Jeff, Bill, Colette and Adilson. No change of seasons in the Big Island while I was there! LOL! But that's OK. I appreciate your good wishes. :-)
