    Reminds me of the project I did in grade 6. We were supposed to go find a complete decayed leaf and laminate it to make a bookmark.

    Great one, oriecat. I like it. Can't say much about the technical details, I'm a total nerd as to the technical aspect of photography :)blulsh2:) - but I like the grainyness as well as the closeness of the leaf. I don't have to remind you of the "Decay"-theme over in the themes, do I? (The "Themes" wouldn't occur to you, ever, in connection with my name, would they?????? ;);););))

    As much as I like it, I can't help feeling there is something laking. I can't for the life of me think what though. :scratch:

    Good work Orie.

    occasionally :p hey, no worries, there ain't been anything to see :( I think I've posted like 2 in the past 3 months :(

    Thanks everybody!

    Ferny, I think I agree with you tho. The more I look at it, the less happy I am with it. I wonder if it's a dof issue. I think I would like it more if it had greater dof to see more of the decay sharply. I do love the grain tho, and the tones I got on this agfa paper are gorgeous in person.

    That's odd. The more I look at it the more I like it. :lol:

    I did think it may be a bit too soft. But then if it was perfectly sharp couldn't that clash with the grain?
