    Congrats finishing TT SteveBee! The illusion of falling is quite good with the branches appearing as stumps.

    Well done steve. Now it's getting even harder for me to be #1 again. You take some distance ;-)!

Congrats with your 2nd place. Should have taken you a while to shoot this picture? Well done!

    Great shot! I thought you caught a falling leaf until I saw the spiderweb threads. Very subtle. Nice use of depth of field, too.

    Nice work Steve, I here was me thinking you'd staged it and that was thread! :)

    It's not that I am overly clever and, as some of you guessed, the leaf is actually suspended by a couple of fine spider threads. But it does create a fine illusion. As is often the case, taking the shot was not as difficult as just seeing it.

    very nice picture. i like the leave in the air and how you blurred out the background. is the leave caught in a spiderweb?
in my favorites - good luck!

    Great shot, Nice detail on the leaf and well separated from the background. How many goes did it take ?

    I think the forest is fallling and the leaf is standing still. (kidding). Nicely done. It's hard to get that kind of bokeh with small sensor digital cameras.

    Is it really free falling? Or do I imagine seeing a thread at the right hand edge of the leaf? Either way, it is a beautiful, unique shot standing out through simplicity. It deserves to do very well in this challenge!

    I really like this one. Even the leaf has character. In my TT.

    Just beautiful. Great contrast between the sharp leaf and the bokeh background.
