~~~I like your sellective focus and part of the story in the bare tree, and still another tree in the distant bokeh has yet to lose its foliage~~~

Gail, Rachel, Brinn, Terry, Randy, Datha, Bill, Daniella, Michael, and Denise - I want to thank you very much for taking your time to write such wonderful comments on this image! I truly appreciate that!
When for the first time I looked at this image stained glass also came to my mind but I couldn’t come up with a good title for this image, so I am really happy that you noticed that. A pleasure to know you liked it! Thanks once again!

Monika, usually I like commenting on photos that I find good but the judges passed on for whatever reason - that appears to be impossible in your portfolio!
So, I pick this one first. I like this so much because of the simplicity of a leaf as it stands out from the rest. Yet, your image does not end at the beauty of the simple leaf, the Fall colored leaves and their branches background have been transformed by your DOF into a pane of stained glass!
