"About to Drop"

By RonnieAG
There are not so many leaves left on our Wisteria but I felt I'd try a shot of what remained: taken yesterday afternoon with flash against a grey late afternoon sky, this was the result.......a bit of an experiment really........so please be honest should you choose to comment. I have avoided applying any sort of frame deliberately.

My thanks to all who viewed and CandC'd on "Colours of the Seasons", and a very big thank you to Christina {ccb} for her User Award.

Ronnie.

OK Ronnie,you have made me feel guilty with your call to be honest.
Yes,it was me that stole that jar of sherbet lemons out of Mr Duffs sweetie shop nearly 45 years ago !!
A well lit shot here,and I feel if I have seen the light myself !!

Your "experiment" produced a superb and elegant picture Ronnie, and omitting a frame gives a marvellous impression of this spray of leaves hanging in space.Patrick

Yes! This has worked extremely well Ronnie - the right amount of detail and colour and the flash has made for a great black background. Well done!

Thanks, Graham: yes, there were one or two untidy leaves there which I felt added nothing so I cloned them out, but obviously not well enough.
However I have gone back to the original and 'doctored' it.
Thanks for pointing this out.

The experiment has paid off in bucket loads, Ronnie! A beautifully well balanced composition and the flash throwing the background black has perfected this delightful image.

Wonderful lighting, Ronnie, and captured beautifully as always. Being a warm, sunny day, I've been out to the local park this afternoon testing a new macro lens I bought yesterday - haven't looked at them yet, but I doubt I can match this! Wink

what a contrast!
the wisteria stand out and seems to be flying away. there is so much detail and a whole range of yellows that benefit a lot form the black background
Works a treat Ronnie, great diagonal and the golden light on the leaves contrasts so well against the b/g

Missed this cracker Ronnie; unusual for me as this sort of thing usually catches my eye. Perfect framing and colouration.

Beautiful in its simplicity.
