    After a night and morning of rain I took a walk around my garden this afternoon mostly looking for mushrooms and fungi. What caught my eye was a leave starting to change color, with almost everything still green this stood out clearly.


    And a bit more detail


    Due to the low light these shots were taken at high ISO (1250) but the noise, even with no noise removal is not bad.

    In a few weeks the garden should be filled with color! Will be doing more regular rounds with my faithful co-explorer (A cat called Kazimir :)

    Thanks for looking!

    Nice. And great colours. I like the first shot best. Looks like it might be a contender for the wide open theme too!

    Thanks Pete!

    These were shot with a Sigma 150 Macro at f4.5 so the DOF is rather shallow, as I was shooting hand held I had the camera on AI Servo to compensate for the leave's (and my) movement/swaying!

    Thats a wonderful red isn't it... It must be quite spectacular when there are whole trees that colour!

    Love the backlighting to get the internal leaf detail, and the cool green colour temp of the over all image as it contrasts with the red.
