Better quality Flickr link (take a look)
I tried to create nicely composed photos using leaves. I still 1-2 interesting ones which I’ll post in continuity.
I used tripod for all photos in this photo walk because it was windy weather and I wanted to manually focus for each photos (which I did). I really like manual focus. Many times it gave me better results then auto-focus. I know many DSLR users don’t use manual focusing, but I insist you to try and get your hands used to it if you’re not using it. (AND MAKE SURE TO TURN OFF IMAGE STABILIZATION WHILE USING TRIPOD)
I also tried to find the exact type of palm tree but couldn’t find it. Let me know if you know that.
Editing: I cropped to create exact composition which I wanted. Adjusted toning, vibrance, added just little green tinting & sharpening.
I hope you will like it :-)
