Challenge has finished
For this challenge: One Leaf Only. Show us the beauty in the detail of that leaf: the veins, the texture, colours, or the pattern. This could be a bright green leaf, an autumn leaf or a skeletonized leaf. There may be very minor leaves in the background, but one single leaf must be the subject of your picture. Macro Shots welcome. SIZE DOES MATTER! See below.
