    I wanted something for a desktop wallpaper and this seemed to offer it's self up for a photo to do just that.

    The shadowing in the top left corner is really annoying me.... and its too light in the bottim right corner.... theres a couple of glares on the leaf also.... try to keep the lighting consistant next time.

    Ah. Someone likes a green desktop wallpaper then. Shake hands on that, mine's green, too :D
    So where have you now placed your icons?
    And what was the light source you used? Is it just the sun?

    I'll have a word with Nature about that next time :p. As you can tell it was one leaf among many, and my rule is never to reorganize nature just to get a photo. FYI the leaves have a shine to them naturally. Thanks for the comments.

    Nice love that desktop image, star burst filter on the highlight? I am afraid I'm one of those terrible people that has a completely empty desktop devoid of icons except drives that sit in the top right.

    ...and if there was anyone I would want to hijack my thread it would be you LaFoto :)

    Opps forgot to answer the lighting question...

    Yes just the sun which made an appearance between very big storm clouds, I would of preferred a more balanced lighting (as in no top left shadow) but have to work with what it gave me and I thought using a flash to lighten top left would of created other problems with reflections in the water.

    I like the capture, the black and shadows bring the green out much more. It beats my wallpaper... (marco of some random money, hey its "green") :)
