I like this - not sure why, because it appears as just a blur of colors, with no real focus point.

But I think I like the narrow DOF having the green leaves in focus and the background fall colors out of focus - maybe that in itself says something artsy - like the "foreground is still summer" or something like that.

I'm done talking now!!! Smile

Thanks...no that's a valid comment completely and mirrors my initial thoughts too. I just snapped this with not real expectations til I saw the colours and light on the monitor when I got back. Odd isn't it? It's my desktop wallpaper for now anyway. LOL!

Really like these kind of shots - they don't fall into the "1st glance" category - you need to look at them!

+ve: Great DOF. Lovely Colours

-ve:
Does suffer from that 'lack of direction/focus' but actually don't think it matters too much.
Not enough contrast between FG and BG leaves - reckon with Shadow/Highlight you could put emphasis on the focussed leaves whilst dropping BG into more shadow

+ve: Good colours and DOF

-ve: As per Mark, but also a slighlty distracting branch/twig running down from top right to middle bottom

+ve Like the shadows and colour of the green leaves against the contrast of the background.

-ve It was the twig or shadow at the bottom running from left to right that I found distracting.

Disagree with you comment on not just pointing and clicking tho..... always worth a try!

+ve: Excellent shadows and DOF.

-ve: I'm not too sure about the colours, esp the difference between the foreground and background. Not enough contrast?
