To me, there is so much within the world of Black and White photography. To take nature in its simplest form and see the beauty within every part takes a keen eye. To see beyond that frame, and decide how to portray that moment for the rest of the world to see takes talent and courage. There is a certain peace that this photograph manages to capture. Sure, it may be of dying leaves; but what else does it represent? It could mean the changing of the season, or a promise of new life in the future. I find the picture to be stunning in its simplicity. A hard trick to pull off. Great Shot!!!
I am shocked to see basically two colours on one of yours. It is still very gorgeous. I think more of a background should be put into the play for this dying plant. More emotion is optional in my opinion. The leafs on the decaying plant has such well detail. It looks very real for a digital painting. It appears that you Are looking directly at the plant. I still believe there should be some more interest added to the background of this digital piece of art work. It is well done in standards in most artist's eyes on deviantart .
