    leaf drop.

    I know this probably isn't the most original shot but I was bored and I needed something to shoot and play with. I used my sophisticated studio... a black cloth napkin, a roach clip and a spray bottle. Enjoy! CC welcome.

    leaf drop.

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: leaf drop.

    Works for me, Mike. If you may accept some minor suggestion, since the leaf was nicely separately from the black background, you can actually keep the leaf in sharp focus all throughout for a strong impact. Very creative, I like it.

    Thank you Jiro. I do appreciate your CC as I am a big fan of your work. I will keep that suggestion in mind the next time I attempt another "studio" set up!

    I like it, Mike. Boredom sometimes brings out some good ideas. Thanks for sharing.

    OK, we know it's a leaf with water drops (glycerine works a bit better, do a google on the technique)

    kinda flat - not much happing, the selective focus is a plus+++

    how about this for fun:

    leaf drop.

    Not sure how I missed this thread, but I like the shot. I actually like the selected DoF as it allows the far end of the leaf start to blend into the background. I would be interested to see how glycerin works to create the drops.

    My only suggestion would be to hunt for a very uniform leaf when trying this.

    Nice shot, Mike.

    Thanks all! I did google the glycerin effect. One person called it the OH MY GOD IT RAINED CATS AND DOGS effect. Lol. I will definatly give that a shot. Thanks again.
