Pretty to see the shadow of the twig on the leaf, Ryan!
Thanks May! It's a nice effect the sun gives as it sets. All the colors are the most alive the hour before they disappear. Greetings, Ryan
Quite true, Ryan!
Hi, the power of the color is stunning. I am looking at it for minutes now. It is great.
Greetings from Germany,
Thank you Carsten. It's interesting, isn't it, how a still photo can offer something that no other medium can give. The wind was blowing wildly, and the leaves would not stay still. The sun was sinking. Not enough time for a painting. A nice pattern for video, maybe. But only a closeup photo can freeze all the movement and let us study a scene indefinitely, even though it really lasted only an instant.
Greetings from the US, Ryan
Hi Ryan. Did you spot this leaf before ? Maybe it was signaling because it was glowing. The sun went through ? I've seen you took the shot with an focal lenght of 300mm and a shutter speed of 1/80. And there I assume you used a tripod. So the question. But you are right, this photo can freeze the moment for ever. And if it is done right, like your picture, you always get back the moment when you took it.
Carsten, I just focused on the bright spots that had clear shapes. All these are handheld. I only use a tripod for speeds slower than 1/50. These leaves were about 10 to 20 feet overhead, so I just stood under the branch and looked for interesting shapes through the viewfinder as the wind blew back and forth.
