  4. This is lovely! And I particularly like the background you have chosen – all nicely softened and blurred, nothing to distract you from the crispness and the colour of those leave!
    Superb! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks as always, John! The background is water, I deliberately pointed the camera in a bit of a strange angle to avoid distracting things on the other side of the canal. πŸ˜‰
