    This is a beautiful image, and probably even better because I don’t really get it. Please explain!

    [BTW: Side note – could we have a reference to your “better photos” portfolio – maybe in your links list?]

    Well, um, it’s a leaf… with the sun shining through it… and the sky behind it… Um, what else do you want to know? 🙂

    Part of what makes this photo work is the contrast between the oranginess of the leaf and the blue of the sky. Also, the lines of the leaf draw your eye up through the image, coming to a pleasing sense of completion in the tiny little wisp at the top. There’s no deep meaning really; it’s all about the lines and the contrast. It’s an art thing…

    Oops! Forgot the BetterPhoto link. For what it’s worth, here it is: http://www.betterphoto.com/Premium/Default.aspx?id=307569&mp=V2
