This is a close-up of a leaf backlit by the sunlight . Taken in the botanic gardens in Oxford. Used the macro mode on my compact and a steady hand!
Adjusted the levels, curves and colour balance a touch, resize and USM. Original uploaded as version 3.
I know I always say this - but the detail is best appreciated on the large version if you can manage it.....
Thanks for looking - any comments or criticisms more than welcome.
