Found some nice dappled light on a unique tree I really like. B&W was definitely the way to go with this one after working with it. I think this is the shot I had in my head.

Curious to know your thoughts.

I like it. I especially like the B/W conversion. It really calls your attention to the dual tonalities of the leaf, which would probably get lost with color.

Thanks all. The variegation does actually show up in color. The middle is a nice mid-tone green while the outer edges are almost white. I had done a little burning in the upper right area, but was afraid it made those leaves a little too flat. I think I figured out what I need to do to polish that up a little. Maybe I'm a little critical just because I know it's there.

I really like the DOF, brings that one leaf to the foreground.
