Leaf in Abstract
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Leaf in Abstract
Leaf in Abstract
Similar to yesterday's post, but I think this one has a much tighter and uniform zoom pattern, which I like much better.

s1/30, f22, ISO 200, EV+.3, 18-70mm lens zooming out, handheld. No PS work other than slight crop, contrast adjusted and slight unsharp mask filter.

Will be attending my daughter's pre-school graduation and will try to catch up on comments later.

I went back to your gallery and looked at them both side by side and I agree with you, Donald! The lines in this one are much more defined!!! Awesome shot!
