    This is a striking image. It seems to move as I stare at it. Great everything!

    When I see these leaf close-ups I often wonder if developers use these to lay out a new subdivision. :-) Well shot!

    Fantastic detail. It's like looking into a giant maze. Luscious green colour.

    Thank you all so much for the wonderful comments.

I've always liked taking macro photos of leaves. I was quite lucky this turned out quite sharp as I was holding it against the sky with one hand and photographing it with the other. I usually prefer more controlled conditions. It's not quite as close up a shot as many of you would think as it was a very large leaf. I agree with you that the little leaf 'roads' are fascinating in their subtly changing repetitions.

    Nicely composed and pleasing in design. The clarity in the detail shows the intricate structure brilliantly. High in my faves.

    When I see the backs of leaves like this it makes me think of aerial photos of the city plans of ancient civilisations. Intriguing patterns.

    The structure has something hypnotic, like seeing roads and parcels from the air. Nice for the theme and nicely captured :)

    Really nice and sharp throughout. It reminds me of an aerial photograph of a city. My entry was similar but not quite is close up.
