Lovely!! I'm always fascinated with the translucense of leaves as light passes through them. And the ginko has such uniquely shaped leaves - Stan is right, they could be a pair of elegant earrings. A very unusual photo, Pu chen. Nice..... #889230

Pu Chen 11/3/2004 11:22:03 PM

Thank you for the comments, Stan and Mary-Ella! I really appreciate your comments!

That's a great thought, Stan! I would love to have a pair of earrings like that! I'm always fascinated by these leaves, now that the light get lower in the afternoon, finally get to capture them with a good lighting.


Dan Holm 11/3/2004 11:54:51 PM

Wow! It truly is a magical shot, Pu! That lighting, the rich lumiescent color, your detail and the dark background really make this elegant pair pop! EXCELLENT!! #889249

The backlighting gives the leaves such a wonderful glow. The elegant earrings analogy is perfect for a very elegant shot! #891081

Thank you very much for your comments, Terry, Noel, Sanjay, Stan, Deborah, Susan, Karen, Mary, Debra, Colette, Donna, Kay and Len!

It is such an honor to be selected, and great encouragement for me! I really appreciate all of your support!

Noel, I can see that will make a great picture. I like it when the leaves coming off in the wind from the ginko in autumn. The golden leaves are just mesmerizing. Never try to shake it though. Must be fun:) #986838

The late afternoon sun in southern california gave this pair of ginko leaves a magic look.
