Green leaf (READ the Description, please!)

The Challenge

Well, ‘tis the season :-) At least around the UK, things are really greening up – with so much rain, no wonder. So I imagine it’s the same in the northern hemisphere, and the southern one still has some green around at this time of the year. Let’s see your photos of a green leaf (that should be the focus of the photo, see challenge avatar). Even if you catch more than one leaf in the frame, most of it should be taken by one green leaf (water drops purely optional). Rule of thumb: if in the thumbnail view you can see more than one leaf, keep it for a different challenge :-)

New work preferred – go out this weekend with your camera and find a pretty leaf, take a picture, and submit it to the challenge and the group at the same time

Edit: this is about ONE leaf that has to be in focus, NOT about water drops on something green, or even just something green

As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the PhotoShop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you!
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject, which can be with this one)
