A young woman in traditional dress, stands against a building, the night sky and moon above; she holds a fall leaf delicately in her hand and looks at it pensively, her fine features delicately drawn. The red color of the leaf is used again, in her hair, the lining of her sleeve, her obi, and on her lips.
