A Remnant of Fall

Uploaded: February 11, 2011


Found this beautiful leaf as I was walking into a store about a month ago, long after the leaves have fallen off the tree. I was amazed at how the color has stayed so long, and I still have it in a zip lock bag! I cropped, cloned out small spots, sharpned to enhance texture, adjusted curves, contrast and sat. Have a fabulous weekend my BP friends and thanks for looking!!:) *Macro*
