Red Leaf with 50mm

During the summer I worked with my 50mm lens taking it off of auto and trying to get as much detail clear and not blurred. If I remember correctly, I had unscrewed the 55mm lens and was holding it backwards against the camera. This was just a leaf I had in my collection, and it was balanced atop my computer.

  1. Yes, you got much closer than I did, but we are right on the same track today. Love the color in your pictures.

  2. Using your Macro gives some beautiful results.

  3. Hi There- love the deep red you have captured . It amazes me how much colour stays in the rotting leaf and rots from the edges, giving it a really different perspective. Nice photos girl.

  4. Great idea. I ought to try something similar!

  5. I don't even understand how you do what you do, but I think it is wonderful,. Continuing my comment theme from your later post ... So much to learn, so little time!
