The Fall of the Leaves

Ha ha, the title is a pun. This was one of my earlier experiments with Photoshop brushes and shapes. The picture shows the beauty of a leaf which has fallen from its tree and which is now in some kind of puddle or gutter. (Thus the "reflection" which isn't really a reflection.) It's rare for me to use brown prominently, but in this case at least, it worked out.

The only thing I'm sketchy about is the stroke on the left side of the foreground leaf. Without it, it blends too easily into the background; yet the stroke itself stands out a bit too much. Perhaps if it had occurred to me I could've used a subtle dropshadow or something. Ah well, I'm not going to change it.

Hey, I really like this. I love the maples leaf, and I think the reflection looks really good!
