April 28th, 2011 - Day 118

Ever notice how in flower pictures it is almost always the actual flower that gets photographed.  Nobody cares about the plain leaf, and it is often cast aside and ignored while the pretty flower gets all the praise when in fact, it the leaf and flower as a whole that make the whole thing so complete.  It is time for the leaf to share the spotlight.  This is for those cast aside.

Aw! I like that! Appreciation of the underappreciated should be mandatory in photography. So much beauty in the less obvious.

Laura said it PERFECTLY!!!! This is a beautiful picture, made more complete by the barely visible rim of the vase, the grain of the wood and the shadow. Overall, very complete and well done.

Beautiful picture and I love the focus of the leaves, the unforgotten beauty! A rose could not be a beautiful rose without the beauty of its surroundings. Great shot!

The leaves are the wind beneath the rose's wings....Or something like that.

Very good point, thank you for bringing the leaf into the spotlight!
