Still Leaf

I took this photo on the banks of the Schuylkil river where it winds through Valley Forge National Park. I used a longer exposure so that the small ripples around the stones were captured in a softer way. The result is an almost 'shrink wrapped' or plastic look to the image.
The leaf in the middle shows the stillness of the scene as you can see it balancing delicately on the surface of the water. Also the water is still enough that you can make out the reflection of the leaf and the surrounding tree branches as well.
