    Wow! this is gorgeous. Is this partly Photoshop or all camera?

Thank you so much, Kara! This zooming effect was created entirely in the camera. I don't have anything against using the motion blur filters in Photoshop. In this case, however, the motion blur effect was created by placing my camera on a tripod, selecting a slow shutter speed, and zooming in as I took the picture. Thanks again for your comments!

Jim Miotke,
Does it have the same effect by zooming out?

Yes, it does Sam. The only trick is, whether zooming in or out, to leave the leaves stationary for a split second, on the point that you want to appear most vivid and crisp. In other words, zoom (in or out) for much of the exposure but experiment with leaving the focal length for a moment to let that view by the one that stands out the most.
