Default Leaves Part V

Simply a trio of leaves - I hope you enjoy them.

This is a well balanced image and I like the transparency of the middle leaf place on the others.

Glad you like it, James. I had a lot of fun finding different ways of placing them. :-)

Very beautifully done Maggie, well composed! Did you dye those?

I agree with James and Klaus' comments. Were these leaves staged on velvet, perhaps?

Sometimes we think that to photograph leaves or sunsets is ... common and it doesn't worth the trouble.

But if we are capable enough, we can make good and nice images out of simple objects.

This is an example of a great set of images.

Very well done Maggie :)

Thank you, Klaus; much appreciated.

Yes, I dyed the red and the maroon. The light cream is bleached.

Thank you James, for commenting. I appreciate it. If I was working on something much bigger, I would have used velvet, but these are so small, I simply used a black piece of poster board.

Thank you so much, Antonio. I think that there is so much beauty everywhere, but so much of it that we no longer really see it. We have to think of different ways to open our eyes because these things, leaves, sunsets etc., are beautiful on their own anyways. You have also shown us this in your photos taken during walks; a bit of mud and water on the ground; normally we say, yuck - but you have photographed them in a way, that we see the lovely lines composed so well and the shimmer of the water and the bit of reflection and all of a sudden we see the beauty within.

:-)
Maggie
