[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I always love to be a part of the hunt,
I like to see how other members interpret the themes.
This is my first contribution for the new Hunt for the Theme: Macro of a Leaf.

OK, this leaf is't complete remainig of autumn.
It hasn't became decomposed, so we still can see it's sceleton.
I held it against some violets, so you can understand the violet and green background.

I hope you like my close-up of a leaf,
have a wonderful and sunny weekend everybody.

From a book Basics of Biology.
I like this symbol of eternal recycling; there is a look through with great patterns and colours; normally we walk over it with dog and heavy shoes.
This is great Sabine

Great POV, excellent bokeh.


I love this. Great entry to the "leaf macro" category. Make me envious :)

The purple and green mix of the background really works for me.


Really nice background you chose here, quite unusual with the spots of blue. A natural abstract!

Hi Wishnu,
Superb entry for the scav, I like this colourfull blurred background and the great details of this leaf with the see thru on the background. Excellent composition.

This looks really cool even in the thumbnail. F/size there is so much fine lacy detail that it is a pleasure, with the b/g cleverly supporting the main role.

Hi Sabine,
Did someone have a meal on this one! Whatever happened it leaves you with an extraordinary subject! The patterns are so awesome, and almost intact...
Excellent focus leaving the background the way it should be - totally blurred out!
Pleasant composition, all well done!
Pablo -

Great photo for this months hunt. Excellent macro with great details and a lovely b/g. The structure of the dead leaf is awesome.

Hallo Sabine,
wow das ist Spitze. Na bei dir muss man immer mit Ueberaschungen rechnen; auch wenn behauptest dir faellt nix ein *lach*. Im Moment bin ich am gruebeln was ich als naechstes in den hunt setze, Ideeen haett ich aber Wetter ist zur Zeit mies.

Interesting, it almost looks like the wings of my dragonfly :)

Very nice subject, seen in a unusual way, i really like it.

The depth of field is perfect, the blue and green background is so nice against this empty leave.

hi sabine
les couleurs du BG sont magnifique,et l'idée de les faire passer dans la feuille est tres bonne.

Hi Sabine,

Beautiful visual, I adored
the colors and drained in the leaf,
Very good captures, I loved
the violet bottom, gives a beautiful one


beautiful , what a lovely leaf and the blurred backgroud looks grand


Nice entry for the scavenger hunt. A little out of focus, but that old leaf is attractive, and I like the colours in the background.

Guten tag Wishnu
Beautiful "see through" laced texture and quite surprizing purple color in it!
Such a creative juxtaposition!

Hi Wishnu
The colours are fantastic! Nice detail on the old leaf, interesting composition. TFS Janice

This is colorful ruin. Beautiful composition.

Hi. Nice autumnal shot, Great DOF, background pastel colours enhance the leaf perfectly. Thanks for sharing.

Regards Phil.
