    Wombat - you have nice colors in your shots, as usual

    A cool looking plant you got there, BE. I like your "keys" shot too gstafleu. Backlit leaves are always very pretty.

    It has been overcast quite a bit here in Vancouver and we've had sporadic light showers, so I'll be posting a few more "drop" shots for those unfortunate enough to be enjoying summer already .

    Meanwhile, here's a photo of a curly leaf from a plant whose name I forget. It turned out to look more like art than a leaf, so I decided to frame it. Hmm... maybe this should go in the "abstract" thread instead...

    F/3.5; 1/60; ISO 50

    gstfleu - great "keys" - brimming with light and all those shades of green.

    bald eagle - where do you find these plants - the green and yellow bicoloured leaf one is really odd but what a photographic opportunity well captured.

    wall - that spiral leaf is a stunner and very nicely composed - really traps the eye and makes it follow the lines.

    Geoff C - you must win the laurels on this round.

    Thanks to all of you for your contributions.

    I have attached one called "mish mash". I was inspired by all your excellent examples of shooting against the light. There really isn't any compositional element, just a busy shot lot of green and red-brown leaves against a blue sky - but I really like the contrasts - thanks for the idea.

    Regards
    Wombat

    Haha - thanks for the comments
    Well I like the mish mash - never mind composition - interesting mix of colours and lighting.

    No, just a Maple, Canada's national tree (well, at least the leaf appears on the flag).

    Here is an MLS (Massive Leaf Shot, meaning it has a lot of them). What I'm trying to capture here is the very tender greens you get when evening light hits young spring foliage. That is always a magical time of year, and it lasts all too shortly:

    Yep ! Lovely shot!!
    Maybe we should do some more like that - we already do loads of up close shots.
    What about gardens? Maybe parks? etc
    Just another idea

    Gerard, as always, your outdoor landscape shots are fantastic. Nice job!

    A new thread for gardens, parks, and large-scale vegetation is a good idea.

    Beautiful pic. Makes me want to go for a stroll (well almost anyway). Wonderful scene.

    I will practice till I get it right, which will probably be forever .http://up.photos.yahoo.com/ed/cowenbecky/album_handler

    leaves and more

    I found this the other day and could not resist the shot. Bet someone else wished it had not wound up where I could find it.
