[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is just a little composition I found that I liked while on the same woodland walk that I took my previous post. The little yellow flower attracted me first but I really liked the contrast between the leaf patterns and the flower. I'm not sure why, but once again this combination spoke to me.

"Art is the imposing of a pattern on experience, and our aesthetic enjoyment is recognition of the pattern.” - Alfred North Whitehead

"Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower." - Hans Christian Anderson

This one took a good deal of PP to achieve what I wanted to show in what I saw. :)

Hello Larry,
Beautiful leaf mosaic here, well captured from a fine POV to show the how the leaves grow to jostle for light and the little yellow flower is a small triumph.
Thanks and all the best,

Hi Larry,

It's easy to see the beauty when you post your pictures but I always wonder if I would have seen it on a walk. The green leaves with their wonderful shapes and patterns and the little yellow flower are beautiful. Colors and details are superb. Your composition enhances the beauty even more.

Hello Larry,
Your choice of compositions are always a inspiration to behold, this one is no exception to that fact. Wonderful colors, detail and exposure!! Well done!!!

Your signature image Larry. I can pick you shots out right off...it is a special and unique talent...I explained to Jane your using others images on your site. I think she was worried...she is like there even before she opens the blinds in the morning and just before she does her morning Rosary...You and your images are most welcome sight in this home!

The solitary yellow flower does something to this shot, larry...
Love this shot...

Larry, this is a very beautiful shot. Outstanding job. Thanks for commenting on my dove. I appreciate it. Have a great day, Bill

Bonjour Larry,
Le relief qui émane des feuilles et remarquable par contre je suis beaucoup plus circonspect sur la fleur qui n'apparaît que comme faire valoir.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
