This past week I was working on a color assignment for my digital photography class as well as a natural symmetry themed contest. This photo fits in both of those categories:
ISO 100 50mm f/2.2 1/160
I tried a bracketed exposure for this shot of -1,0,1 for editing in Photomatix. Once I had put the photos in Photomatix, I picked a version which I felt was pretty natural looking because part of what I was wanting viewers to see was the way the red was basically imitating the overall shape of the whole leaf. When I was composing and editing the shot I was trying to blur the background as much as possible. I liked the green color, but didn’t want any competing detail.
Any thoughts? feel free to leave them in the comment section.
