Very cool - it looks like a leaf skeleton.Actually it would be a nice design concept, for something to do with organic structures.
I kept fascinated for a moment...These leaves are between x-Ray and skeleton, very graphical indeed.The hight contrast processing and the framing are very clever, a winner!SwissCharles
Wonderful, I see these leaves everyday, they will look different now, thanks...
wow fantastic, very creative view
Many times, "abstract" offered by nature lead us beyond the usual abstracts, they let us enter inside hidden structures, which we are also built upon...
Wow, what an image. Very oriinal and creative. Well done!
Markus Spring says:
Wow - well seen and processed. In your version that hidden structure really springs out of the image.
Great picture. Makes me want to get out immediately just to sing some songs about spring and the beauty of the coming days. Thanks for sharing such beauty.All the best & safe travels,Fritsch.
Wonderful eye catching texture. My immediate association was some kind of lizard backs.

Nice composition. Good one, bravo.
What a interesting composition. Simple. The contrast between the dark leaves and the white veins. Well spotted.
Very cool shot here. Wondering if you filtered the lens or if this was post-processing. Either way it's quite striking. Very nice shot.
Excellent, i really like this. The sharp contrast between the "veins" and the rest of the leaves is very striking, the b&w processing is great. Like it a lot.
Wow!! I thought this was spiderwebs at first, but at closer glance, I see that it's leaves. Very, very cool. :D
one of my favorites from you thus far. reminds me of structures and veins providing life. very cool. great contrast.
reminded me of 'the day after tomorrow' when the guy is falling thru the glass, quit slowly it shows it fracturing under his weight, very cool shot, and neat processing!
Wow, you turned a simple vegetal close-up into piece of art : real gorgeous in B&W, that's so original, i say a great Bravo*
Great abstract provided by nature! I really like the high contrast treatment, the veins look like thorns. Good stuff!
Love the abstractness of this image..and how the leaves fill the frame. Fractures - is a perfect title!
A fascinating, and very nicely captured, photograph.
Truly a black and white image and not what I normally refer to as greyscale. It's exceptional in richness and design.
I like the conversion in black&white for this shot...nice graphism!
Great composed and exposed image.
Cool! Love the texture! Beautiful and intriguing graphic composition. Love it!
Like the white lines that really pop out the shot against the dark color of the leafs
João André Farinha says:
The choise of black and white really makes this a great photo. It gave it an amazing visual impact.
I thought to this image today and I saw the Christus crown of thorns in these foliages. Great symbol!SwissCharles
Diane - Daily Walks says:
Excellent! Especially with the hint of color coming out.
wow. never thought of you doing close ups of leaves. i thought you only do street candid shots? LOL.

this is simple but has a a strange concept to it that makes those white lines to it quite artisic... we get these in kenya they are cool
Terry H. says:
If you had to give them I shot it would not be hard to find a vein. :)
Natalie | everyday-wonders.com says:
interesting image :) when I first saw it on preview it looked like an image of thorns.. :)well captured...
un B&W inattendu et superbement réussi
Great, very graphical construction !
superbe rendu, c'est très graphique
such a great natural graphism and i like the nearly b&w tones! i would never have spotted this :)
Great! Nice contrast - they seem really unreal though they are real!
I like the contrast and the lines http://krikis.aminus3.com
Excellent demonstration of abstract without being really one
Ted Szukalski says:
great photograph. The contrasty patterns and overall dark tonality really make it.
T and S says:
Beautiful execution. The image has lovely high contrast and good texture details
Amazing. As Phototherapy says, these are like little x-ray skeletons. I imagine them dancing across the frame.
They look sharp and dangerous, yet bold and attractive - terrific sense of design and overall pattern. The deep rich blacks are lovely.
excellent b and w in the tones
Marco Verheul says:
Hey Ilan, wonderful picture! The heavy contrast is very appealing. Great work.
Oh! What a gorgeous black and white! Contrasts and lines are magnificient. Well seen and done.
Great idea. Diseño puro.
EYES WIDE SHUT says:
Absolutely stunning. The veinwork is simply incredible

A wonderful pic, a dark pattern that just makes you keep looking
This is a very good framing and treatment. I like how you desaturated the subject.
Awesome picture. Art by nature catching by phograph.

I LOVE this one Ilan. great one, with a very nice choice for this contrasted b&w. a simple but effective shot (what kind of plants is this??)
very nice...filling the screen like that makes for a very pleasing abstract.
This was exceptional use of patterns in the nature. Fascinating.
Very beautiful and interesting shot!
Wow, thats an really great abstract shot out of the nature.... I love it ;)
Wonderful! I really like this one!
