I was intrigued by this stream near my house. It was so still you could see in detail the leaves that lie in their final resting place at the bottom. The branch's reflection seemed to be reaching out to grab them.
this is a wonderful complex image - it is a bit confusing, but then as your realize what you see,it becomes more wonderful. I love the b&w for this. The power lines are a bit distracting for me, but I guess you didn't have a choice....

@Chris: Thanks for the comment, Chris. The b/w was the only choice here as the mucky brown of the rotting, wet leaves was not appealing! I understand your thoughts about the power lines and I thought about cloning them out, however, I liked the diagonal lines it brought to the scene. It is a full and dynamic scene and it does take a minute to "see" it. I think that is what I loved about the image. It's like looking through a kaleidoscope and waiting for a picture to appear.
I commend Chris for speaking his mind in a constructive manner here, but for me, this complexity is what makes it so appealing, and I would agree with you, Tracey, that this image does have a very dymic look to it. Exellent then, from my point of view.

I find this intriguing too...and the power line is part of that.
