It's amazing how well these leaves pop against the bricks given the tone on tone palette, Ellen -- the HDR really worked for you here. I like this very much -- lines, patterns, details, light and composition are all great. #1346939

Sorry, I couldn't come up with a clever title for this one. While searching for images to capture showing texture, I found these leaves on a wet brick walkway. Using 5 exposures, I converted this one to an HDR image using Photomatix.

Exif: F Number: 8, ExposureTime: 100/12499 seconds, ISO: 100, FocalLength: 85.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 50D
