Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Leaf Love

Seen as the weather is still a bit pants, Ive done a bit more macro work tonight. This is actually a leaf that my son insisted on bringing back with him from sherwood forest among other things and has abandoned and totally forgotten about to my advantage. He will probably ask me where it is in 6 months time after Ive thrown it in the bin and myself totally forgotten about it, and Ill go 'what? 'your after what leaf' Im amazed they remember stuff at such a young age, I cant remember what I did yesterday
Anyway, shot this with my 150mm macro lens for 10sec @ f22, i dont think its perfect, but Im warming to it.
Comments welcome, or if ya just wanna chat thats fine
cheers
Ash.

Re: Leaf Love

Leaves are always best photographed against the light. Here the light has illuminated the veins and colour of the leaf and the highlight round the edge is a nice touch IMO

Re: Leaf Love

Great texture and warm tone. Side lighting on the left edge is a bit harsh. Sharpness too soft?

The balance of leaf and black background is spot on. The overall leaf shape with the rounded undulations is the best!

Re: Leaf Love

thanks for your feedback, I agree this version ive posted does look alittle soft, maybe from the resizing, at 100% its as sharp as a razor. It was actually quiete difficult to make 1 leaf look interesting and I find the harsh edge gives the leaf a starting point and then it gradually blends into the black on the other side, which I like.
cheers
Ash.

No problem Ash, well done on your 3rd place. Success comes to those that persevere and yours definitely stands up well against the others
