I really love this! There are so many contrasting elements from the drops of dew to the texture of the leaves (I can almost hear them crinkle), to the changing colors as the leaves die for the year. Nice framing, great contrasts, and for some reason, I just love the composition. Excellent job, here.

Bonjour Claude,
good composition and well framed with beautiful colour!
perfect sharpness, vivid colour and details
the raindrops just awesome with light and shadow
well done
have a wonderful weekend, Claude!
all the best

Hi Claude,
I just love the water on the leaf! Your photo is very clear & the colors are nice.

hello claude,
very nice post, the leaf with the dew drops looks beautiful, the lighting is excellent, sharp image, the details specially the textures of the leaf look lovely, nicely framed,
well done,
tfs & regards

Cool! It may not be the first time rain has enhanced an already good picture, but it is among the best times. That doggone little camera of yours done so fine. Just think that you could have spent thousands and had the same thing:-). Of course some who do spend a lot on lens, get the bang for tech buck and some really need it as in some of the African shots I have been seeing lately...
For what your doing, this is grand!


Belle lumière Claude. Cette feuille semble ressortir complètement du lot. Bon cadrage pour ce type d'image, belle réussite!

a very artistic way to shot the autumn...nice colours and sharpenss,have a nice day,Luciano

Bonjour Claude,

Une belle image de cette feuille recouverte de gouttelettes d'eau, la photo a une bonne composition, netteté et de jolies couleurs. Bonne journée.


Great image, perfect shot for this time of year Claude. Nice and sharp, great detail.
Morning light is the best IMO, and it's effect here adds a great dynamic to the capture :)

Bonjour Claude,
Quelle belle nettetée de ta photo!! bel encadrement et prise de vue macro, et les couleurs sont magnifiques.. Bravo..jolie composition..
Mes salutations.

salut Claude

c'est tout simplement une composition artistique
avec ses goutelletes d'eau sur la feuille morte
dont j'aimes sa couleur qui se distingue
des autres couleurs du background

comme j'avais écris dans mon critiques précédent
(ta dernière photo du mésange) et comme le dit Bob,
bravo car tu nous présente des photos avec ton slr-like
digne de photo de caméra reflexes, TFS


Hello Claude,

Very well composed with excellent details and lovely autumn colours.
Well presented with nice focusing as well.
TFS and best wishes,

Sorry I will be back later.

C'est très bien réalisé cette composition Claude ! Bien vu et bien fait, les gouttes d'eau sont absolument sublimes ! Bravo !


Superbe photo Claude!
J'aime particulièrement l'utilisation de la lumière et les couleurs profondes.


Bonjour Claude,
J'aime beaucoup cette photo, excellent POV,la lumière à travers les gouttes d'eau est très belle , le cadre me heurte un peu, il me semble qu'il enlève un peu de richesse à la photo.

Bonjour Claude,

C'est beau, tout simplement ! La photo est pleine de fraicheur et de couleurs... J'aime beaucoup.

Bravo et merci


Hi Claude,
iconic image of autumn, looks pretty in its precision, well handled light, very appealing deep colours.
The postwork application of a broad semitransparent border looks a bit artificial and intrusive to me
- I personally would prefer to concentrate 100 percent of attention on nature and its matter-of-fact image.
To me it is more precious just as it is.
Thank you! My best regards,

  • Great

Allo Claude, wow...tu fais de superbes photos avec ta Panasonic, j'adore celle-ci, très belle technique des ombres et lumière, bravo.
Comme toi j'ai hâte un jour de passer au reflex. :)
En attendant je retourne voir tes images.
