Leaf City

In a rare moment of stillness (i.e. the wind stopped blowing) I managed to catch these leaves with Brisbane City in the background. It's not exactly how I wanted it, but the best of the collection.

Taken during the 30th Sept Brisbanites Flickr meet at Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

See where this picture was taken.

    Thanks Anne, despite it not being exactly as I wanted it, I'm still pretty happy with the result :)

    Yeh I like it too... that's what they call bokeh isn't it?

    I'd maybe have tried to get the leaves to frame the buildings.... maybe get one up in the top left corner of the shot?? But I know these shots aren't easy, esp in a windy spot! Lovely smooth water. :)

    I love it, I love it, I love it! It's a nice city bokeh, and again, I like the reflections of sunset on the side of the buildings.

    Yes Alison it is Bokeh (at least what I know of it) :)
    Framing was very limited due to the wind.

    Thank you very much Margot :)
