24 hours later.....

I really hoped I??d be able to go back to the woods at Goodwood today to take some more autumnal shots now the leaf colours are finally beginning to change. However, it??s been so completely overcast, wet and grey today that it just didn??t seem worth it. That left me without a subject to shoot today until I noticed yesterday??s hazel leaf on my music room windowsill, now looking rather forlorn after twenty four hours inside a heated house. I wasn??t convinced this shot of it would really work but once I??d got it onto my computer I decided I rather liked the texture and feel of it. Maybe tomorrow will be more conducive to woodland shooting….

Fascinating interplay between the in and out of focus bits and the texture.

Helen, I meant to tell you this on your previous post, but it'll work just as well for this awesome shot. A person who critiqued a photo of mine said his instructor had told him to look for the most perfect leaf, flower etc. before taking the shot. I totally disagree and think that the old, faded, crumbly, curled ones are WAY more interesting!! Your photo above totally proves my point ;)) To my faves...
