Morning Mist

My Comments:
f/4, 1/500, 200mm w/36mm extension tube, ISO 800, hand held
This was a shot looking to capture texture on a mist filled morning. It was a difficult morning for subject matter. My 150 floral shots that morning weren't doing much for me so I found this dead leaf covered in a web of dew drops..and figured what the heck. After seeing it larger, out of the camera, I liked the color and texture. One thing I was proud of that day was all of my in-camera cropping. I have been much more aware of what I am shooting thinking about that. Plus it makes life so much easier coming up with the final photo.

All that said, do you think I should have made the dew drops the main focus of the shot versus the leaf?

Bryan's Comments:
In answer to your question, how could you make the drops your focus without first removing the leaf? If you removed the leaf, chances are the you would have had a gaping 'hole' where there was no longer the leaf as well as any drops-stay with your instincts here and do what you did-this is another POTW for you.
