Pic of the Week_Fallen Leaves

Fallen Leaves_MG_9117

Canon 5D camera and Canon 180mm f3.5 Macro L series USM lens. Exposure Details: 1/8 second @ f16 ISO 100

This image of fallen leaves was made with early morning light on a frosty morning in Central Victoria. It was a simple image to make. I used a telephoto macro lens from an elevated (birds eye) viewpoint and moved in close to isolate the key elements of the image from their surroundings.

The dewdrops and tonal changes throughout the image provide the viewer with visual stimuli. The diagonal lye of the central leaf adds a subtle sense of dynamic movement within an otherwise static scene.

I employed Adobe Lightroom 2 for initial processing and conversion of the original color image into black-and-white. The yellow and green tones (colors) were applied in Adobe Photoshop CS4. So we now have a split toned (colored) black-and-white image.
