Hope no one minds if I judge this 30 minutes early as I have a cold & am heading off to early bedtime. Thanks to all who entered; you make it very difficult for me to choose a winner because I am one of those people who like almost everything :)
teekay: the colors are so vibrant it makes me wish it were November all year long. We put on a pretty good show of color here in our neck of the woods & the leaves are about half down now..... but still plenty left to enjoy.
Engineer6: I love the blue on blue tone of this peaceful scene. I am drawn to water, love every body of it from oceans to streams so I find this very appealing.
Kevan, I know you put all this together but it is awesome. The pattern & subtle brown & red tones are so intriguing.
M_six: Love the pumpkin in with the Salvia; gorgeous show of fall colors in a whole new way.
SJC: What a beautiful sunrise! I love the colors & the silhouette of the foreground. Perfecto!

So, that said, I have to pick one winner and that goes to...........Drum Roll............
KEVAN!

Thanks, Mo! Thanks, everyone, for the kind words. Terrific entries, all.

This entry of mine was a dry collage, a project I had brewing in my mind for a couple weeks, as I was dealing with yard clean-up of the same subject, and walking my dog in the woods nearby. I had posted a series of leaf arrangements on my FB, and sorta became infatuated with the shape of the white oak leaves which culminated into the project you saw here. So with a backpack I walked the woods where I knew the white oaks lived, nitpicked my selection, smiling off the awkward stares I was getting from passersby, and concerned some authority figure was going to approach me about stealing their fallen leaves. Hey...it could'a happened!

Back home, I steeped the leaves in hot water so they'ed release their death curls, and pressed them flat. Next day was the assembly and shoot. By the late afternoon the leaves had totally dried out and returned back to their wrinkled rigamortis.

I'll post the next challenge soon.

Congratulations, Kevan! You certainly deserved the win and I appreciate the amount of effort you put into these challenges while most of us (I think) first try and find an archived shot that suits.

Sadly, I can't find any ginkgo trees around here. They used to be around, they must of moved on elsewhere is all I can figure. Good luck!
