I am so proud of this photo. Having spent time setting up this photo, it turned out just as I had wanted. The glass ball is beautifully centred on its rocky pedestal, the leaf, lying next to it adds just enough colour to the photo without drawing too much attention. The ball itself is interesting to look into as it has focused a natural image of the trees in the distance and the river running by. The focus on the ball and leaf in the foreground is stunning while the background is out of focus, this creates a distinct separation between the scene that I have set up and the natural scene beyond which creates a tense atmosphere.
