    I meant to say, Gerard - that back lit leaf is something else! lovely shot.
    More from my Mum's garden...
    Apparently - this is the nearest it has ever come to flowering

    Geoff - Great shaprness on that last one, very nice.

    Wombat - Thank you, that is an interesting idea, shooting leaves towards the light.. I will have to give that a few attempts..

    Wombat, that is a well-framed conifer shot. I don't remember too many conifers in this thread, a lack that needs remedying.

    pbt1234, that is a nice combination of jumble+drop shot. Do you have an image editing program like Photoshop Elements? If so, try sharpening your image, as the last step after resizing it, using Unsharp Mask, and e.g. amount=100, radius=1. You may find that the images look a bit crisper that way. But without it it is still a nice shot.

    Geoff, that is a great, err, whatever it is from your Mum's garden. Nice DOF and good details in the hairs.

    For my LOTDs I have two samples of radial leaves.

    First, Radial Leaves With Bug:


    And then some shiny radial leaves:

    Thanks gstafleu. I have Photoshop, but try to never touch up photos unless they are bad. Will try this and see what happens. Thanks again for the advice and the comments. BTW - nice shots to you as well.

    Thanks for the kind words Wombat. I enjoy getting comments - good or bad.

    Thanks to you all, once again, for another bunch of excellent leaf shots.

    As the sun is very strong I am still playing with shots into the light. Here is one from today of some overlapping leaves that caught my eye.

    regards

    Wombat, you caught a nice pattern.

    Here are my LOTDs. First, some drop leaves:


    And some crossed leaves:

    Thanks Gerard for the great leaf shots - you really have this off to a fine art. The conifers are a particularly welcome addition - they really are tricky to capture.

    Here is my LOTD - "Leaf Fringe"

    Great shot Geoff. I call these totty grass - think they are Briza maxima. It is something I have on my list of seeds for next year. As you have found out they are so photogenic and you have captured their fascinating form so well.

    Here are a few sweet chestnut leaves as my LOTD - think I should have cropped off the torn leaf .
