A Shadow of a Reflection

Reflection/shadow of a Marri Trees leaf that has decayed to a skeleton. I thought it made for a fantastic photo.

Impressive details, I would agree this has made a fantastic photo. What is the leaf on to create the reflection? Really neat image. #11531515

@Susan thank you for your kind words I really appreciate them 😊.
@Michele thank you for your kind words and feedback. The reflective surface was my bedside table which is a shiny black finish. I noticed it one day as I had the leaf resting on it for a few days and I thought I really should get a photo of this. So one day I did 😊 #11531528

Thank you again so much for all your kind words and comments. I am glad you are enjoying my work. I woke up and went to sleep with this on my bedside table for a few days before I actually decided to make the shot and I am glad I did. Thanks again Terry! :) #11534696
