I don't know what tree these leaves were on, but I liked the light shining through them. I found them at Merriments, my local garden centre yesterday in late afternoon light.
Thanks for looking and for any comments and/or criticisms - does it "matter" about that light bokeh on the right?
Have a great weekend - hope the sun is shining where you are!

The light bokeh is what attracted me to the shot in the thumbnails, Ann. Lovely tones in the leaves and the translucence makes the veins stand out. A fine image.

Lovely image. Colours and textures really show through. The image has almost a 3D effect and looks wonderful.
Full marks all round Ann. SmileSmile

Such a bueatiful image - well done and well spotted. I think that the light to the right of the subject is fine as it adds depth to the image and as its well blurred out it does not detract from the main subject.

A stunner. Love those tiny little Spider's web strands you can just get a glimpse of too on the leaves. The light is superb and the texture in the leaves amazing!

This is just wonderful Ann, and no - nothing needs to be changed. You've captured loads of detail, the bokeh sets the tones and the colours, and the depth of field is spot on.

Exquisite shot !!!.....wonderful quality with a lovely 'aura', helped by the blurred hi-lights......don't change 'em, they're an important component
in the 'make-up' of this image !!!!!!.....1st class !!!

Try covering the LH 15% with a card on the screen image & see what you think ????.Wink

The bokeh is part of what the lens has captured and I never have anything against it. I mean, it's just light being captured 'naturally' by the glass, yes?

This is great light captured. Great eyes, Ann.

Golden on one side and grey on the other, beautiful light on the leaves and the bokeh is as good as it gets Ann, so very well done. Delighted to be able to award my little badge as well.
