[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These Japanese maple trees are very common here in Korea. I took this photo right after the first frost this fall. They still had their beautiful color.

The Japanese maple (Acer palmatum) includes an incredibly diverse and beautiful variety of hybrids. (Over 300 cultivars.) They may vary considerably in leaf shape from the 'typical' Maple leaf, to deeply cut 'Lace leaf' varieties. The foliage colors range from light green to a deep burgundy. The growth habit may be anywhere from a low growing, dwarf weeping variety to a 20 foot tall shade tree. Although Japanese maples look as though they would be delicate, they are hardy and durable trees, seldom damaged by insect pests or by air pollutants.

Hello Joy!
I like frosty texture of this leaves. Also interestind blue, pink and lilac shades here.
Nice moody photo.
Best wishes,

Good shot with good detail and wonderfully subtle shades of colour. Visual focus point seems to be the leaf almost in the center, this might be a bit more clearer in a different choice of frame (thoough differnt to say, no idea what was around here naturally). The lines of the other leafs provide some pointers and circle this central one, but there are also some that pull the eye outside of the frame. In a perfect world, the stem of the leaf bottom middle and the cropped leaf at top left would be place differntly.
As is a very good shot, Thanks!
