Happy Valentine's Day

 A heart-shaped leaf

Yes, it's a day early but this is a reminder that TOMORROW is Valentine's Day.

This real leaf fell on a slanted glass widow at the Toronto Botanical Garden last fall.  I rotated the photo, coloured the leaf red and printed the greeting.

 An orange version of that leaf 

This is closest to the original photograph.

 Inverted colours

Added ink outlines

I hope you ALL have a wonderful day!

Nice selection and a great idea for a Valentine's greeting. I collect heart shaped rocks but haven't been able to get a good enough shot of one of them to post. You remind me that I need to keep trying.
