    • Thank you so much! It’s getting increasingly difficult to find pretty flowers to photograph.. Will be a lot of leaves on this blog soon haha

  8. Beautiful composition. Maybe push for a little more contrast?

    September 12, 2012 at 12:56 AM

    • Sorry for stupid question, but do you mean add more contrast in Photoshop or so (I don’t have that yet) or change my camera settings?

      September 12, 2012 at 5:40 AM

      • I would do it in PS but any photo editing software should help you do this. To be honest my camera settings are largely irrelevant as I shoot in RAW or DNG so I can play with the files more later. But each image is your creation and vision. You should do whatever pleases you unless you want to sell your work! We all see things differently and creativity is not my strong point. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Thanks for your comments, I really appreciate them! I shoot in JPEG (even though “everyone” says RAW is better) and I just downloaded a free trial of Elements. Let’s see if I can improve some.. I have no intention of selling my pictures or becoming professional. I’m happy just shooting randomly what I like! Your pictures are very inspiring, I learn a lot from watching them. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks again!

  9. Going through your comments and know how you feel..end o summer is near now.Still ,as you,ve showed o here in an excellent way,there are so many ways to look at a leaf..:-)..oh and using Picasa only myself aswell..Think it helps to bring out that little bit o extra without touching a picture too much

    • I’ve never used Picassa, only Elements and so far I’m happy with it, though I think I’ve used maybe 5% of the available functions.. There’s SO much to learn! But like you, I don’t want to touch the photo too much but keep it as natural as possible. ๐Ÿ™‚
