I do often find myself pursuing complex compositions and camera techniques in hopes of creating compelling photo art. Some nature scenes call for a very straightforward and simple shot though. When my eyes caught this vivid Maple leaf already situated in a very aesthetic environment all I had to do was to adjust my focal length and tripod, and to trip the camera’s shutter.
I think some of the other fallen leaves have interesting curling taking place, and that they are essential visual accessories.
