“Poplar Leaf Abstract”

Another closeup leaf abstract shot I have been playing with, I tried to get as close as possible to take in all the structure and details of this beautiful leaf, I love the burnt bronze orange color of this.

It has been a pretty bad year for landscapes this fall season, but I have had a really good time shooting these leaf shots, hope you have enjoyed viewing as much as I have  been taking them.

The techs for this shot were 150 macro with ext. tube, f/22 at 1.5 seconds, iso 100. White balance was set at auto.

  2. Absolutely remarkable Bernie. Detail throughout. Very well done.

    I love the color myself. I think artists and photographers all too often shy away from orange and bronze.

    If you get a chance take a piece of glass and paint the backside black and photo a leaf on it. I’d love to see what you come up with.

  6. The leaf macros are wondeful Bernie. All of themhave been fantastic in their own way. Ron (still) in Bolivia.

  7. I really like that this one appears to be decomposing – that it’s acurately depicting its current set of circumstances. You could have doctored it up in PS but then you would have had an old, ordinary leaf.

    Great job, B.

  11. Great texture in this Bernie. It is all a matter of preference, but I also like to do these using a polarizer.

  12. You caught the details beautifully. I have thinking about an extension tube – will have to look into it more. Well done!
