    If this is straight out of the camera it is truly a treasure! Love how you refrained from centering it. Very nice!

  • I could see the nice leaves but took a while to get it uncluttered behind especially cos the wind kept blowing hard!! Thanks Paulette!

    Beautiful shot Jenny. Love the soft out of focus areas, very nice bokeh.
    Suggestions … well the yellow colouring and browning around the edges of the leaf might suggest overwatering. I’d back off on the sprinkler a bit and add a bit of spray on trace element, one of the seaweed extracts might work a treat.

  • ha ha, poor neglected garden, the weather was dry for a month and the plants were parched then 7 inches of rain and now they don’t know if they are Arthur or Martha!

    Jen, I would like to suggest you crop it into a panoramic. The structure of the leaf tends to lend itself that format. There ya go got my 2 cents worth …hmm maybe be that should be 5 cents because we don’t have 2 cents anymore lol xoxoxox :)))

  • alrighty I will try that, I kinda liked the background more than the leaf! A little girl at the markets in the weekend told me my beautiful bokeh backgrounds were crap, she wanted to see the background in focus thank you very much!! She still bought some stuff tho :)
