Autumn


Beech

Still trying to focus on the front edge of the leaf - almost got there!

It's really hard to get it right, especially when there's the slightest breath of wind.

If this contest is about quantity, Ellie, then I think you have just got your nose in front. [grin]

[Tip...keep hammer and nails in your camera bag...small breezes cease to challenge.]

The leaf seems just to get carried away by a gentle breeze of wind! I like this pic more than yesterday's because of the more colourful background!
I think I like yesterday's better, but this is good too
These are lovely pics Ellie, great colour, and tiny plane of focus
This looks so beautiful and perfect - yet ghostly - that it makes me shiver.
Another superb one Ellie!

I like how you have kept trying I would have given up
Another honeyed gem.
Lots of our leaves have fallen but my favorite, the beeches are at their peak. Beautiful bokeh in this series.

It is really pretty. Did you try shooting in continuous burst? Sometimes when shooting macro in a breeze that is the only way to go.

I don;t have the patience, Ellie; good for you getting this! Love the colours.
Unlike Bill I think this is the better of the two Ellie, lovely range of autumn colours in this.
I can see what you mean Ellie..maybe not quite..but what the hell..its good.I like it.
Your patience is paying off, its lovely Ellie.
I found the same problem when I snapped a similar leaf. Look to see what I did to solve the problem of a breeze.( Dec 28th 2008).... Ha!
