Green Wave

Playing around some more with backlit Bird of Paradise leaves. Tried to get my plane of focus parallel to the subject for edge to edge sharpness. All comments welcome. >=))>

Minolta 200mm macro

Outstanding, Bill. The detail you’ve gotten is enviable, at least for me. What caught my eyes first, are the beautiful gradations of green. Very nicely seen and captured.

Great, Bill. The slightly out of focus corners act as a vignette. Like @linda_mellor I love the greens, and also the composition of the curved lines around the central “stalk”.

A beautiful image. Your attempt to have edge-to-edge sharpness is successful except for the extreme corners and the different green hues make the image very appealing. Interesting macro with nice lines.

A field in The Palouse or a backlit Bird of Paradise leaf. Only the photographer knows for sure.

What a good eye to see this, Bill. I absolutely love it.
