Abstract

(D70, 38mm, f14, 1/25, ISO 400)

This morning at about 8 am, I went outside to our neighbor's burned down house. They have a really old, rusty horse trailer next to our garage, which is great photo fodder, especially for the macro that I seem to have a love affair with. I love macro because it makes every shot abstract and interesting. Looking at this photo, you wouldn't see old, rusted horse trailer...ok, you'd see old and rusted, but not horse trailer. If you were to zoom out and take a photo of the entire trailer, it'd just be, well, boring. They have these random chains hanging from the side and this leaf was just sitting balanced like that. CC

I love the color palette of this photo -- it's all in all so great! (It really intimidated and inspired me at the same time!)

I love this! Love the colors, and the leaf. Great framing. I think this shot could use a little vignetting to really make it stand out.

AprilF, now that I've looked up the term 'vignetting', I think that could look awesome with this photo, ha ha ha. I might have to play with that a bit.
