    This almost has a tilt-shift quality to it, can't quite put my finger on it
    Nice :)

    I have no idea what that means...
    Red leaf reminds me of a canoe :) Very nice lighting.

    grad youve learnt your colours! :P

    Thats a good shoot! The colours go well together .
  • David de Groot said:
    It is a bit - probably due to the fairly open aperture and angle. Needless to say, I took quite a few of this leaf in different angles, etc, but settled on this one.
    It was sitting next to me when I shot the Grey Fantail, and figured I had to have a go at the leaf too. ;-)
    Carefully labelled for the Red-Green colourblind ;-)
    Thanks Pete :)

    Love this David. That light is really something else, looks like a studio shot.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks - 'tis just afternoon sunlight, but the angle was about right, which helped.

    Yea I really like the saturation of the colors, and how the grass gets out of focus around the edges.. nice with the darkening out as well...
  • David de Groot said:
    The dark edges (vignetting) were added in post-production, but the rest is "as shot". :)

    I thought so, I lke the effect. Which program are you using, Lightroom?
  • David de Groot said:
    Yep - Lightroom is the bees knees, suits my workflow perfectly.

    This shot looks cool the colours complement each other nicely.

    Thanks Simon. There's something about a red leaf that just makes you want to photograph it ;-)
