I was out in Goldstream yesterday taking photos in the beautiful soft light. It was overcast, but still directional. Bright enough to show shape, but soft enough not to have harsh shadows. There was even an occasional light drizzle to put sparkle on the foliage, etc. In other words a perfect day for photography. 

Going through my images when I got home I found these two that both incorporate a yellow leaf, but in two completely different ways…

the first contrasts the leaf with moss and rock, making a calm tapestry full of interesting textures.

The second image uses a similar leaf as a blurred background object, highlighting the habitat of the spider…

completely different use of a very similar leaf giving a very different feel to the photo.

So which one do you like better?
