Here are a couple recent shots of leaves, I'm still exploring different ways to capture them and I quite like these two.
The first one I almost wish the depth of field was even smaller and horizontal through the leaf so it was almost non existent, I tried to bring down the sharpness of the area in focus a bit to soften it and blend it in with the rest, I probably could have gone a bit further perhaps? Or perhaps another go at it with the camera. I do like how this one turned out on the whole though.

The impressionistic one is getting close to where I want to be with the layering of the shapes with that concept.

Would love to hear your thoughts, thanks for taking a look!

You know, I walk around looking for cool angles, interesting people, the perfect flower. Then here I see now a second photo from you that tells me I am trying WAY too hard. The most simplest of things in an absolutely beautiful manner. I just shake my head and smile.

From what I have seen on your Flickr and here, it will be the prettiest white square ever posted, I am sure of it. Haha

It's so weird to see this, because just yesterday I was attempting to do the same thing- right down to the same species of tree. Of course mine didn't turn out nearly as nice as these- I like the low contrast and lovely green tones, and you've got a nice amount of softness without the entire image becoming just a blur.

Thanks so much! Keep at it, I have taken these shots more times than I'd like to admit ;) sometimes I think you need to do a subject to death until you find what you are looking for.

As for the species, I think it may be similar but perhaps a little different, mine is a weed ;)

Interesting shots, PR. I like the bit of movement in the first, and wish there were a bit more depth or drama in the second, even at the expense of some of the dreaminess. But, maybe that's what you were after.
