Taken in the Autumn this year, LR4 - Silver FEX. Looks like frost on the leaves!
Nice shot Cliff and I think I see what your trying to do, however for me the dark leaves around your subject leaf are distracting. If this was taken in colour it could be worth using some of the colour filters in Silver Efex to try and make the object leaf stand out a bit more, you could also try the local adjustment to tone down the background.
Alternatively if you make a duplicate layer in your editor and apply Gaussian Blur to blur the background you can erase around the subject to expose the sharp image underneath and this would highlight the leaf.
Hope you don't mind my comments.
ps. Thanks for your comments on my recent shots, I have an hour to spare so decided to experiment with some low-level shots.
My first reaction when seeing this image small size was to be a little underwhelmed, clicking on it to make it larger was much more interesting. I then screen saved it and opened it in PS full size, I could then see the potential. I think what we have is the problem of judging a 4 or 5000 pixel image reduced to 1000 or 600 pixels, this has a more detrimental effect on some images than others. I expect this image well printed at a large size would be quite special.
Hi all thanks for all your comments, they are very much appriciated. I did look at useing the antique effect to isolate the leaf but to me it did not look quite right(see the winch and shed).
Spotlit detail Cliff, it's about the seeing !!
