Hello friends in TL.

Of all the plants that I have around my house, my two water rose apple trees (Syzygium aqueum) are favorites with pests. I’m not too keen with pesticides and more than often, they have undergone heavy attack by pests and the leaves will turn yellowish out of the sudden. On two occasions, I have to prune the trees heavily just to give the trees some new life.

Here is a shot of the eaten leaf and I like the artistic skills of these small bugs in creating an artwork on their food.

Thanks for viewing!

Hi Jusni,
Fine perforation in this decaying leaf.
Good use of shallow DOF sticking your sharp focusing on the lower part of the leaf.
Very good natural colors helped by perfect lighting.
I like the dark BG to boost forth the orange leaf.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

A nice pattern of a memory very beautiful colours and great details well done JUSNI NASIRUN.

Hi Jusni,

What a lovely capture from a rust colored leaf with such well formed perforation!
Great focus and nice colors. The sharpness and POV are well chosen, where a shallow DOF worked so well.
The blurry BG provides the best possible contrast to this colorful leaf.
Well done!


Hi Jusni.
A lovely shot of the autumn leaf with amazing shallow depth,the contrast colors looks so beautiful and the bokeh is beautiful.
Best Regards

Hello Jusni,

Simple and well done macro of this old leaf.
Light, colors and focus qre excellent!
Parabéns e um grande abraço,

Hi Jusni,
Nicely seen and well presented.Seems like the bugs really have a full meal that side.Creative natural patterns well shown.

Bonjour Jusni,

Dame nature à l'art de faire de l'Art.
Une jolie dentelle végétale, lovée dans un contraste attrayant. Excellent.
Mes compliments pour avoir capturé ceci.

It's pathetic that the pests picked your two apple trees out of the whole garden to show their destructive action here , strong pesticides are the only means to rid your garden of the nuisance but they are not without risk to your children playing around i presume , believe me Jusni the problem we have here too, rightfully not in the winter but comes summer and they are on a rampage !
On the positive side they are artists in a way photographically speaking , i see almost perfect circles gnawed out of the leaf and by munching through its nerves they managed to make the poor leaf consequently turned yellow and that makes it pop out of the green ones in the BG with outright evidence , you have given your subject the place it deserves if only to show the viewer a critical situation taking place in your own space , oh gosh they can ravage Mother Nature's nicest in minutes and that is exactly what i see in this image , thank you my friend for sharing this ,

Hello, Jusni. Well seen and a lovely POV for this unique photo highlighting the natural demise of the leaf. Good composition, colors, idea and The Dark BG and DOF. Cheers.

Hi Jusni,
What a shame, but it does make a creative idea for a photos. Great DOF and warm colour tones. The BG showing through the holes, makes it even more effective.
