    Congrats Ysal! Glad you got to shoot this before 'leafing' the garden!
Don't forget to give the challenge host your ideas for Panachallenge #190.

    Oh my goodness, I can't believe it! I've been out all evening and just now had the chance to catch up, and what a wonderfully pleasant (and unexpected) surprise!!!!!!!!

I was at a real loss this day when I went out to the botanic garden looking for anything, and found this as I was leaving. Thank you so much for all the kind comments and votes!

    ysal, nice going!!!! pretty sure i had this pegged for first place. and i don't mind the negative space on the right. it could easily be used as a greeting card with some message or poetry written in that area. (think i made similar comment to someone else) it is one of those shots that should have a life outside of our challenge. well done.

    Redbud is one of my favorite trees, there are a number of them on my daily walk around the harbor also have a few in back yard. This is a very nice image... exposure focus and lighting are right on. out of focus background makes the leave pop... my top pick.

    Lovely shot. Right on theme. Perhaps a bit too much background. I like the shadow on the leaf which adds depth.

    Nicely spotted - fits the theme really well. I like the way you've captured the shadow along the centre of the heart. I do feel there is a bit too much negative space.
