Bill: Fantastic light on a really nice subject. I like the comp and your DOF management especially. Most excellent. >=))>
Bill, Thank you for the feedback. I was lucky with the light that morning - it didn’t last long. I experimented with different f stops and settled on this image. Still learning how to balance light, DOF and composition elements. I often do not see things until I get to the computer. thanks, Bill
Very striking and timely with the fall leaves out. Good DOF on that leaf!
Wow! Wonderful capture of the leaf and perfect placement against the BG one! My only nit is the tiny bit of something bright on the right edge. Easy to fix!
Excellent separation of subject and background with selective DOF.
Diane, Thanks for the critique. That bright area on the right edge got bye me. Good catch.
Bill: it’s an original and very well executed photograph. Congrats! Richard
Near/far, smooth/detailed. Interesting subject and concept. Really unusual image nicely presented.
Nice image with interesting contrasts as described by Patricia. I also like the contrast between light and shade on the leaf. I like the way the larger leaf leads into the red leaf. Nicely done.
