Shooting Challenge: Fall LeavesS

Adam has already rounded up resident graphics artisans for his weekly Photoshop Contests. Consider Shooting Challenge its straighter-laced cousin, a weekly contest that challenges resident photographers to capture funny, beautiful and creative shots. This week's theme? Fall leaves.

Interpret the theme in absolutely any way you'd like. We only have three rules:

1. Submissions need to be your own.
2. Photos need to be taken the week of the contest. (No portfolio linking or it spoils the "challenge" part.)
3. Explain, briefly, the equipment, settings and technique used to snag the shot.

I took the lead shot was taken on a Panasonic GF1: f/3.5, 1/100s, ISO 100, 14-45mm kit lens.

Send your best entries to me by the end of Thursday at contests@gizmodo.com with Fall Leaves in the subject line. Save your files as JPGs or GIFs, and use a FirstnameLastname.jpg naming convention using whatever name you want to be credited with. Include your shooting summary in the body of the email.

Thanks, I'm looking forward to everyone here showing me up by the end of the week.
