    That looks really strange... interesting, but strange. The rotation is what does it.
    BTW, shouldn't you be in bed by now?

    I like the shot better in color because it provide more contrast, however I think the DOF is off. The front of the leaf seems a little blurry and the wood that is way out of focus is slightly distracting.

    I like the shadow of the leafy. The selective focus is on point. I am not sure if it seems natural. Fill us in on all the exif and post processing details.

    "Ooh, I got it!!! B&W (that's the answer to everything, isn't it?)" That is a bold statement. I hate to divert from your thread... Most of us percieve the world in colour. Does converting your shot to greyscale automatically make the frame more dramatic?

    darin, the wood looks weird because it's concrete ;)
    anyways, yeah, I wish I had used slightly greater DOF, but I can't go back now! Thanks!

    craig, here's the exif data:
    Focal Length 70 mm on Nikkor 18-70mm
    F/4.5
    1/400 sec
    Oh, end the B&W is the answer to everything is kind of a joke. Nearly everytime a comparison post is made, everyone flocks to the B&W. But I do think this shot works either way.

    Nice! Wide open apertures can be killers. I think you used it well in this shot. Plus I could never figure out shallow depth of feild, so I stop down. I am a little jealous. I may be getting tired of seeing the world at ƒ11.

    Again; I missed the joke. That always happens to me... Anyway; the shot does work both ways. I like the colour version. As long as there is even a splash of colour I will keep it RGB

    It feels like I could touch the screen and feel the texture! I like it as is.

    So it is :blushing: At first I thought is was wood that had been weathered over time
