:D That's beautiful Ryan! :D I was going to ask how you layered it and then I read your heading above! ;)

Thanks Pam! I thought it was kind of bizarre myself. :-) It's a pothole filled with leaves and a little water, and I focused on the leaves in the reflection. It's not a long focal length, but I used my telephoto lens, which has a rather extreme minimum distance to subject of over 5 feet, so the blurring of the close leaves is exaggerated.

Like this one a lot, Ryan. Bravo!

Thanks Dann! Actually, I'm still not sure what I think of it. But I'm very happy you like it. Ryan

I think it's wonderful!

I love how the out of focus leaves and water are mauve and purples. Its an interesting way to show the autumn leaves. I like it too!

Thanks Vicki! The leaves were mostly regular brown ones, and they turned very dark sitting in the puddle. It's like a little world within a world.
