Again, a creative shot and colors work well.  Did you consider at all cropping  just above the trees at the left over to the top of the following leaves and then directly down to the right of the falling leaves?  Or something like that.  Your capture of the falling leaves are sharp, but I might want to see them more prominent in the shot to showcase them more...Gotta ask though...did you kick up the leaves?  :-)

I like the composition you have chosen due to the broader context it provides, and I too am very impressed at your timing for this shot. Whether it was a sudden gust of wind or a nearby high-powered fan that kicked up those leaves, is not important to me when you have achieved a result like this. You might be very lucky, or very meticulous, or both - but you are at least one of those things, because this is a great shot! I do recommend sharpening it up a little bit, and maybe softening the sky where it is a tad artifacted.

 Hi Richard & Patric

In some way both of you are correct suspecting that the leaves are not in the air because of natural wind....after all they are too big and heavy to be raised from the ground

The trick was that I was throwing them into the air and with in the calculated depth of field.... i was trying to synchronize the timing with the auto exposure mode of the camera ! And this was the best result !

It was a drill that I enjoyed !

We are like a thread in a huge fabric of generations !
