Age Spots

October 16


Back lighting accentuates the vascular system, insect damage
and the markings left over a growing season. The chloro-
phyll leaves the leaf exposing the colors/pigments beneath
right before the tree enters a dormant winter's "sleep".

the colour and detail in this picture are superb.

Beautiful light, and excellent detail. I prefer the colour version as I think it accentuates the light and details better than the B&W version.

Both are great shots! I think I like this one better because of the effect of the backlighting.

I think I like the color version a bit better. Regardless, it's a good crop and amazing detail.

Stunning. The backlighting is wonderful. Excellent clarity. You're getting quite a bit of DOF at f4 unless you cropped a bit. At f4, this close, I usually get a razor thin DOF with the 100mm macro. Nice work- love it!

Same photo but so different copies and so beautiful both!! GMV

I love the light and composition. Almost like a big butterfly. And all those lovely details. Beautiful despite the age spots. All part of the natural cycle.
David Clunas17-Oct-2005 21:30
Both work for me, the backlighting here is just right not too much light and I like the pool of light in the bg adding that extra tone to the image.
Sharon Rogers17-Oct-2005 20:19
Great title. I like your composition with one older leaf behind and of course the light.. wow! hehe

Nice color and detail, Scott. I like the subtle shadows falling
across them too.
Stu16-Oct-2005 21:35
Beautiful backlighting, Scott. Much as I love mono, I think the colour one is better here.
