SECOND PLACE: "Autumn Swirl" by Donna Eaton, SC<br />
A small flowing creek with autumn leaves photographed with a polarizer and tripod to obtain a slow shutter speed to capture the movement of the water and leaves. What memorized me were the golden leaves that remained still at the bottom of the water while the leaves on the top of the water were trapped by the current to form a patterned whirpool.  Image was taken in Acadia National Park, Maine USA.
