Thanks. Your so right about the dof. I actually tried to focus one of the wterdrops, but since that's a very small leaf, about 2 cm, for some reason I didn't come out right. So I thought what the heck it looks good as it is Thanks for commenting.
I really love the look of this as it is. You've kind of been redefining photography for me - does it really need a central focus? I think I agree the background could be warmer and work with the dry/dead theme, but the way it makes the leaf stand out is fantastic. It's actually kind of creepy in a way... it feels inorganic, you know? But it is. ahh!
that's really nice, simple and effective as i prob said before - the narrowness of the depth of field is an issue though and i think teh lens that you use to take these shots is inhibiting what you can do wioth them - with a lens with an aperture ring you can close the aperture up (higher f numbers) to increase the dof at teh expense of light coming through the l;ens - you could probably have gotten teh dof much deeper this way and therefore made it a lol more effective although smaller aperture sizes = slower shutter times = have to use a tripod
its a lovely photo though and like all your photos it captures again the beautiful fragility in nature
Thanks! I think my mission is to show people little fragile things They are beautiful tho! Anyway, I'm using a lens I got from my old telescope so there's not much I can do with it. I'm planning to purchase a new camera asap and a proper macro lens too.... if only I had the money
Those decomposed leaves have always fascinated me. Combining one of them with droplets is a good idea. Beautiful colours...
Have you tried getting the focus onto the first droplet? I love how it magnifies the leaf veins...
