The Leaf

I isolated the leaf against a black background and put my light to the side and a little behind as the sun had been when I first noticed it.  I added a little fill light from a silver reflector and shot it with a Canon 100mm 2.8 micro lens.

I love the image and the translucent effect of almost being able to see through the it.  As I view the photograph and contemplate my personal life, the thought occurred to me that I wish I could do a little something to brighten other’s lives in my old age as the leaf did for me.
