What a beuatiful look at something we usually don't pay alot of attention to and just walk over. You saw the beauty and possibilities of this leaf covered floor and then did some incredible work in presenting it. Love the full frame, the lighting is just beautiful, I love the suttel changes of the colors, the shapes and it looks like a touch of the fract filter to add to its beauty. Good as it gets here girl. Gorgeous work my friend. #9160228

As so many others have noted, this is really all about the colors -- and what beautifully rich tones you have here. Such a warm image.
