    Oh WOW! So many more great shots!!

    Mika: Love your composition ... makes me love the shape of that leaf
    gstafleu: LOL Now I know how they hang on ;-)
    Wombat: Purple, eh! Very pretty array of colors ... ummm non purple colors though LOL. It has a very nice abstract quality about it as well.
    aparmley: Water drops look lovely on those leaves.

    I think I'll just spray some on my leaves now since I never seem to find any waterdrops ;-)

    Finally took some more photos:
    Baby Leaves (I would have liked to get closer but this was way in and I was already holding away other leaves so I thought I'll leave the branches alone and just get the shot )

    aparmly - great droplet shot on your leaf
    BE - nice little bud shot
    wombat - nice to see a more conventional bamboo - I must say mine
    bears little resemblance to a normal one. - Also, I really love that back lit
    shot - beautiful colouring
    mica - whatever is that? it's lovely - great shot
    rinume - what is that fantastic orange leaf??
    2 pics of a fern attached (hopefully) slightly different lighting: - 1st one with fill in flash and - 0.3ev both f3.5 - non flash one at 1/13th sec
    - Hmm - just tried it - I'll post the second one seperately

    Not sure which you'll all prefer of the two - be interested to see...
    They're nothing special - but I thought I'd try anyway

    Out of the two I prefer the second one ... its softer and has a more natural feel to it.

    The orange leaf is from a croton plant. The same plant has leaves that are green and pink, brown and orange, and all sorts of lovely combinations. Here's another leaf from the same plant:

    And another variety of croton

    WOW folks - what great contributions you have all added to this thread. So many shapes, colours and textures all beautifully captured - thank you everyone for sharing.

    Geoff C - I agree I think the non-flash fern has it for looking more natural.

    Here's my contribution for today - Pineapple mint. I was a bit puzzled why the centre looked out of focus until I realized that it is hairs giving a fuzzy appearance. Canon A80, handheld, macro mode, Ap. f/4.0, Exp. 1/500s, exposure compensation -1/3.

    Thanks again

    Wombat, those purple beech leaves are an excellent backlit jumble, the composition works very well.

    Geoff, I like the first one, the colors look better to me. The second one has a slightly bluish-washed-out look. But maybe that is the natural color?

    Rinume, that is a great bit of variegation.

    I have two LOTDs. First, the following looks to me like a parent proudly showing its offspring, so I have decided to call it "Parental Leaf":


    Second, Wombat isn't the only one who likes back-lit leaves. Here we have a back-lit leaf plus flower cluster:

    Gerard - I reckon the blue/green washed out look was due to the low dusk light and not much colour saturation - but it IS slightly more true to the actual colour.
    Jumping across just now from the Flower thread - I explained I have taken a load of pics in my Mum's garden - here's the first of some of the leaves I took there...

    gstafleu - great backlit and frontlit lime leaves. What an amazing contrast between the two just showing how much light effects the subject. Great photographs with amazing detail and considered composition.

    Geoff C - a really crisp shot and nicely composed - they look like a bit like one of the small Alchemilla species that I seem to remember have silver hairs on the edges of the leaves.

    Here is a sprig of a conifer with "flowers" and a new shoot.

    regards

    The leaves and the water droplets are beautifully captured - looks just like the real thing . What a great example of what is referred to, on this thread, as a "jumble of leaves". A great phrase for those shots that are like a mosaic with no specific focal point but which just invite the viewer to browse [should that be graze ] randomly.

    Thanks for sharing,
    regards
    Wombat
