The Best!!! (so far)

I am proud of the focus. I always worry that after download I will see that something I want to be in focus is not in focus after all—even if I’ve chimped, zoomed in, right after taking it. This photograph is a bit too predictable to be one of my favorites, but that rock was so unusual, and it had that cool leaf on it. I don’t know what I could have done with them to make a less expected photograph that still showcases both the leaf and the rock.

Oh, and thanks, Ken, for letting me know you find this your favorite. There’s one more photograph in this batch, but I predict that you’ll like today’s better.

I love this photo!
Thanks, Cathy. You might be interested in my reply to Ken’s (oneowner’s) comment on this photograph.

What beautiful balance! I wasn’t sure if it was wood or rock, which is a bonus in my mind – it keeps me wondering (until I read the tags). I don’t know what else you could have done either, and I don’t care if it seems predictable, because that rock really isn’t a predictable background, is it? And the focus is so clear and even across the whole picture. Very pleasing.

Thanks, Lynn. I’m glad the photo pleases you. I thought about identifying the surface as rock above the image, but decided I preferred the ambiguity (until people read the tags). I’m sure the rock is shale, but it’s unlike any shale I’ve seen in the area.

That is a beauty! The rock is so detailed and the colours so attractive, and yet it is still the leaf that takes centre stage. A great image, Linda

Thank you, Andy. Light always does define contours, but in the case of this leaf, it does it in a big way. Post-processing was really minimal on this image.
