These leaf images have very little photoshopping. The red is the natural fluorescence of the leaf, enhanced by having late afternoon sun shine directly through the back of the leaf, with the camera facing the leaf's front. Spot metering on the leaf and low aperture causes the background to black out and blur, allowing you to capture maximum detail and color. Also I use tripods (one to hold leaf, one for camera), a remote shutter release, and shoot in RAW format.

Leaves are beautiful but how do you make them soooo beautiful? Red is red but how do you make red soooo red?
I would love to know.

Wow, this is fantastic. Great backlighting, I love the fine detail in the leaf and the vibrant color that contrasts the background perfectly. Voted and well deserved, thanks for sharing this with the rest of us.
