NancyP: peeling paint on sheet metal
Congratulation, you are right! The pattern stems from the peeling paint in the area of two dents in a steel container.
chrisby: Dear Ruth,may be my language problem: do you require more than one leaf or is it sufficient to show just one leaf? I always think whether the plural in a challenge title means more than one per entry or refers to the entries in general.
Thank you, Ruth!

When I saw this image, I was sure that could only be from the master of steam engine photos and in fact, it was. Very nice capture!
cjf2: Great picture. I love the position of the individual elevators and the shape formed by the rails.
A compliment from you counts double for me, thank you so much, cjf2 for your nice comment! Never thought that I could beat you in a challenge :-) - I was immediately attracted by the rails, but had to wait half an hour to have the elevators in a good position and additionally without movement. Unfortunately I had only my little S95 with me as always during business trip and only 28mm at the wide end.
chrisby: My photo in my galery is tagged, the link under my photo works, I see the big galery with the current status, but not my photo (tagged 8 hours before). Any idea?
Thank you so much, dialstatic for your help, now I found it! I am quite familar with dpr challenges where photos are ordered by time of upload. So I gave up too early with my search. Did not expect this approach here :-)

Well done! Better than the original!Chris :-)
Excellent! Reflects perfectly the spirit of the challenge and looks really like a work from Winston Link. Thanks for the additional info.Chris :-)
Must be a great camera if battery life is the first item on the cons list.
Paul Lazanov: Love this
Thank you, Paul, for your nice comment! I am glad you like it.
MarioSS: Good timing, nice photo!
Thank you very much for your encouraging comment; I am glad you like the pic. Not only the timing, also choosing the correct white balance was demanding; light changed every few seconds; and I don not like RAW :-)You have also a very nice entry, very impressive portrait!
RuthC: Folks, this 'One Orange Leaf' challenge is one of a series of coloured leaves challenges which I thought would be enjoyable for you to enter. The Green Leaf challenge was fine. So was the Yellow Leaf, ditto the Brown Leaf. Now suddenly the critics are suggesting that I should accept every colour from green, to pale lemon to dark brown, and call it orange! Come on, this is supposed to be fun! When I think of "orange" I think of the citrus fruit, or the national colour of the Netherlands, carrots or pumpkins, saffron, Buddhist monks, Californian poppies....I plan to disqualify those entries which I believe are too pale in colour to be considered orange. I accept that computer monitors vary in their colour display, so I am trying to be careful here. Ruth
Thank you, Ruth, for clarification! Now it is much clearer for me what you mean. But I am a bit lazy and I don't want to go out and look for an orange leaf. But you mentioned the citrus fruit. I recently discovered an ORANGE in my fridge which I have overlooked for more than a half year. Wonderful brownish color and with a partially beautiful green coating. Would that be okay for this challenge??
Summerhill: I want a waterproof camera to take kayaking, etc. I may drop it in the water,but won't be diving with it. I would like to have the highest quality pictures I can get in a compact...that can be dropped in the water.
Are there other cameras that I should consider?
I use my waterproof camera mainly for bad weather and dust and dirt protection. You should look at Panasonic FT5. I have the FT3, quite old, and picture quality is really good. Picture quality of FT4/FT5 is even better. Also according reviews: if you more look for picture quality you cannot do wrong with FT serie!
Very nice picture and a clever idea to just show a detail. Congratulation to your win! - 40 years ago I bought a very similar camera from Quelle, a big store in Germany. The camera was announced as a russian camera named Zenit and looked a bit like an old Leica replica. I owned also a 50, 35 and 135 mm lens.
Beautiful picture, gratulation for this nice capture. Interesting, we both have an island-sheep combination. I had been many years ago on Islay. Since then I fall in love with the whisky of this region. Also Talisker from Skye is great. Chris :-)
Dlync: Well done. One of my favourites in this challenge.
Hi Dlync, thank you very much for your kind comment; I am glad you like my sheeps.
For me this is the winner, congratulations, well done! You have got 5 stars from me.
bluemoonman: Thank you, I think it may be a Milkweed but I will try & find out for sure when it hopefully re-appears again this year.
In Germany the flower is called Weidenröschen (Epilobium). But there are different kinds of Epilobium, the seeds vary a bit.
bluemoonman: Wonderful Macro photography the detail is amazing, Congratulations on your well deserved top spot.
I really appreciate your encouraging comment, thank you very much. You have a wonderful entry too, congratulations!
