    I finally decided to get into a DSLR camera after playing around with film. I picked up a Canon D400 (Rebel XTi)and a Canon 28-135mm USM IS lens. Took it out for its first few shots today in the cemetary across from where I work. I noticed the other day the unusal way the leaves on this tree were changing rather uniquely. Here is one of the nicer ones:

    Congrats on the new camera.

    Nice pic...with that dof and exposure, the leaf virtually springs off the screen. And good eye re how the leaf's colour was changing - it's fascinating to see how evenly the colour is 'draining away'/changing.

    that's one of the coolest things I've ever seen. I would have moved back a bit and moved the subject to the right a tad...but other than that cool pic.

    Very pretty - I really like the water on it, too.

    Our leaves turn a less than impressive shade of brown here before they fall. Sigh.

    Hey Anita,

    It was taken about 12 noon. I drove over at lunch time and sat in my truck waiting for a break in the rain to get in a bunch of shots. Got a few decent ones of the leaf and started taking a few more shots around the cemetary before the rain came again and forced me away. I am really glad I spent more money on a decent lens rather than a couple cheaper ones. The Image Stablization came in real handy as an ISO setting of 800 and the IS allowed me to get this handheld. I did still have to brighten it up a bit in Photoshop, but not too much.

    Thanks again everyone, you are all very kind!

    Brian
