The last leaf of autumn

This is another autumn shot of mine dating back to 2007. Although it is understandable that some think this was photoshopped together, it is actually a straightforward shot with minor post-processing. I found this autumn leaf one morning lying on our garden table, with the almost leafless branches of the trees reflected in the glass/metallic surface. A stunning effect. One of my more popular shots on Flickr, 16 times faved.
