Thanks for the help. You know that i am workimg with a new camera and learning to work in manual. Right now my eyes are so screwed up.. I am now wearing bifocals that look like coke bottle bottoms. I do enjoy this shot because the serated edges make the leaves pop back and forth.....sort of an optical illusion. Ricky when I get home let's do a quick photoshoot so I can practice F-stops.

Hi Jude -- like your composition, the different shades of green, the lighting and textures -- especially the serrated edges. I think these leaves work well!

(I don't think of that as party pooping - I think we all appreciate your critiques. They are always so positive and helpful and gently-stated. And, like this comment of yours, even though it is not about my photo I find it very, very useful. Thanks, and keep on pooping!)

f 5.4 - so still, would need to bump that up.

Jude I love this composition. I'll be the party-pooper to mention that the foremost leaf taking up the upper left section, could be sharper. I noticed you shot at f 5.6, and by bumping that up to f 11 or slightly more, this would have been amazingly sharp all over. Still - I love it.

Well done. Leaves are well positioned within the composition and the backlighting really brings out the veins and edges. I enjoy photographing interesting leaves and this gives me some new ideas.

I really enjoy this - the sharpness of the image plus the fun of figuring out which edge goes with which leaf.

This is a photo of grape leaves growing on my studio front porch, There are three separate leaves with the light source coming from the back. I tried to create a collage of serated leaf edges along with the veins and different shades of green. I enjoyed this weeks challenge.
