TTL aka Through The Leaves

By Darien
A shot from my recent trip to Laguna, California. Probably my favorite shots from the trip. I only had about 15 minutes to shoot before there wasn't enough usable light, and I was literally running from composition to composition, trying to get as many in as I could. Normally, I try and think things out a bit, and take at least 5 shots per compo, just to make sure I get what I need to work with. I didn't have that pleasure this evening.

I took no more than 3 shots per compo, and spent probably no more than a minute and a half on each one. So far, I've gotten three landscape shots completed from that evening, and I will probably get at least one more....not bad for a fifteen minute landscape sessionSmile

such a pleasing image, for color, tone and composition.

did you use a flash? if so was it diffused in any way?

the overall concept is cool too, offering a lazy dusk that looks warm and inviting, somewhere we would all like to be im sure...

well done, ads :o)

@robadsy: No flash was used, only backlighting from the sun. Thanks for the comments.
