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!
RuthC: Congratulations, chrisby, on your well-deserved win in this Seed Pods challenge. This is a wonderfully detailed capture of the lowly dandelion puffball, with some of its parachutes blown away. I really like the contrasting colours and textures here, from the smooth pimply centre, to the rich brown shades of the rough barbs on each seed head, and the softest indication of the feathery parachutes which are ready to depart. Ruth :-)
There is no-one who can better describe and praise an entry. Thank you, Ruth, for such nice words! Chris
