Gold leaf I

I had to do a bit of work on this one to make the leaf stand out from the background. Gaussian blur wasn't enough, so I played with the filters and settled on a bit of frosted glass effect - in keeping with the frosty morning on which it was taken.

Making some family visits this weekend, and wont have the laptop/pc, so have a great weekend everyone and it will be catch up for me again come Monday!
