    Default Some Leaf Pic for CC

    Here are some leaves pictures I took this evening while on a walk with the family.
    I erased the photos from my camera before noting the camera settings for each pic. Oops! I thought I could retrieve that in iPhoto, but apparently not.

    1)I wasn't too sure about the leaf being OOF, but I think I kind of like it.


    2)I did some editing with levels and saturation in iphoto


    3)This was cropped a little. I think it's my favorite


    4)I played with the highlights and adjusted levels

    I really like #2, 3, and 4! #4 would have been my no-question favorite if it was in focus, but I think only the very front edge got focused? it sure is beautiful though. My 2nd fave is #2 because of the detail of the fern spores and the sunlight! awesome!

    I think my favorite is #3. I love the warm fall colors and the play of the shadows on the leaves. I like your composition as well. Color and focus look good too. I do wish the tip of the bottom most leaf wasn't cut off, but otherwise, I really love this one.

    GOOD JOB!

    I really like the texture in #2! #3 has great fall colors!

    1. I don't really understand this one b/c the leaf isn't the main focus. It's a good pic, but for a leaf contest, I don't think it will work.
    2. My favorite. I love the coloring of it.
    3. Love the colors here, but the comp is throwing me off a bit.
    4. pretty!

    Yes. I think my next homework assignment will be to learn how to change the focal points on the camera. I thought I could wing it bc the manual made it look very complicated, but apparently not.

    Thanks! I agree. Of course, I didn't notice it until I I had it up on my computer!

    I'm thinking maybe if I had the mid-part of the leaf in focus, it would work much better. I actually just put the camera on the ground and waited for the auto focus to do it's thing. I had no idea if the leaf was even in the frame! But again, focus homework needed here.

    Thank you ladies! I really appreciate your input!

    1 - not my favorite...wish the leaf would be in focus
    2 - LOVE
    3 - Love the different colors here...especially love the blue sky in the background
    4 - very nice, wish it were more in focus, but love the stark contrast in the red leaf and dark background!
