The Creative Exchange - week one

My offering for The Creative Exchange is this dead leaf, just clinging on to the plant before it falls. I can't remember the name of the plant but the leaves are very large. I was experimenting with isolating one thing against a blurred background and I'm quite pleased with it. I'm not sure about the green leaf showing behind - I think it detracts a bit from the washed out tones of the rest of the photograph. But it's early days and I think this is the most creative offering I have so far. I'm pleased with the focus - just what I wanted.

And the main thing is I'm really enjoying myself :-)


  1. I finally found you!! Been searching all morning.
    Left a note for you in the comments section of today's Creative Exchange Post.

    Thank you for posting your Exposure Experiment. It's fantastic!

  2. I love this shot, makes you just want to crinkle the leaves in your hands, great colours and so tactile.

  3. I love the muted autumnal tones - very nice. :)

  4. I like this one a lot Angie! It's a perfect fall shot.

  5. The focus is really great - I love how the green shines through the holes of the leaf!

  6. Things like that bit of green you most likely didn't notice until you put it on the computer. Doesn't it make you want to go back out, rip out that green leaf and shoot again? Not that I've ever done that, lol. :0)

    I think you did great!
