    Dessication

    Found these two gum leaves which had decayed to leave just the venetation structure. Looked interesting enough to try as a subject.

    I like them both Ken. Nice and simple and yet elegant and fragile.

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    I'll take both shots as winners, Ken. I like the way you handled the highlights and your control of the shadow details here. Well done. The added frame border is a nice addition, too.

    Hi Jiro
    Thank you for taking the time to view these. And thank you for your very nice feedback comments. I am being given so much help and encouragement from kind, knowledgeable folk like you that if I can't start to get a few things right by now I would have to be a total drongo! Still, it is nice to be told that your efforts are not too bad! Thank you.
    Cheers
    Ken

    Just add 'MacKenzie'

    Very good, Ken.

    For me, the first one in particular, is a real attention grabber. Not only have you photographed the leaves superbly well, but the whole presentation of the image (balance of colour and tone) really works.
