I was playing with long exposure today ( see my post in the monthly assignment "Vivid Orange" entitled "The Haunting of Jack B Little") I found that B & W really helped to show the wood grain through the leaves..Thinking it may be a little 'busy' to the right of the pumpkin.Looks like I will have time to keep experimenting over the next few days.Time to dig out the ND filter and experiment with how long to let the leaves in one place..and I need to mark my frame 'boundaries'..but for my first time really doing this with a still life,, I am pleased.

Very interesting photo, Sheri. I like the ghostly look of the leaves. I am not very good at long exposures, so I would have taken this concept using multi-exposures and just moved the leaves at random. (Being an "old film" guy, I try to keep it simple for me.) Good job.
yeah that bugs me too Hopefully I will get some time to work on this idea before all my leaves are gone although I did buy some 'preserved' ones.. (all the trees are mostly bare except the maples, just starting to turn) I have so many littl esticks and leaf clean up to do here at the farm I am hoping to be caught up by Thanksgiving and ready for winter.. If not leaves I will have to come up with another prop
Hoping THAT prop is in short supply again this year..although on our 'after supper walk ' last night my BF and I did happen to see and feel a few SMALL flakes.. Well ..off to the leaf mines for the afternoon!
