Backlit II

Another shot of backlit leaves taken at a local park in the Chicago suburbs. This was a good learning experience for me. It gave me a chance to experiment with the different light metering modes. This was taken with spot metering which I locked in on one of the darker leaves to keep the picture fairly bright.

F/8 - 1/640 sec. - ISO-400

Comments welcome and appreciated!
