Very nice image. The yellow leaf is certainly the center of interest for me. You must have used a slow shutter speed to get the blurred water. I think that I would have removed the brown leaf, however. It looks like a set-up with it there. I also like the shapes formed by the rocks and water.

Hi John

I did use a 3-stop ND filter to get a very slow shutter speed. What you see is exactly how mother nature arranged it. Though I would agree it looks a little too perfect to not be arranged. I was tempted to remove the muted tone leaf but I couldn't bring myself to do it. I kind of like the play between the two leaves. One full of color the other muted. I might try re-doing the photo using PhotoShop to remove the one leaf to see how it looks. The yellow of the leaf first caught my attention. The shape of the rock & the texture of the moss with the contrast between the water flowing around it really brought all the elements together to make an interesting photograph.
