Extreme macro of a red autumn leave. It took a while before (I think) I gave the colors justice in the "digital darkroom". Using Graphic converters excellent control over (among other things) individual color contrasts gave it the richness of color I remember from when I was out shooting the photo.

Great detail in this Klas. Like the darkness and the sharpness.

Wow, I almost didn't see this one it seemed so dark in thumbnail, but full screen it just comes alive. Very, Very, nice and original. Great Job 10/10

This is a 'must view full size' to appreciate the beauty. I almost slid right by it, but it jumped at me when opened! The detail is incredible as is the color. Such richness. All of the vein structure is so visible. What a macro shot this is! Thanks for posting it Klas! :))

^_^ Thank you so much guys. I agree with you Sam about "Perfect Imperfection", I just felt this one was nice too. I was afraid people wouldn't get pass the thumbnail... I'm glad you gave it a shot. :)

Wow! Are all leaves like that or did you have to spend hours searching for the right one? Man, if I had a good color printer.... This one is too good to just be kept in the computer!

Thanks for the great compliment. I actually spent hours getting this one shot. ^_^ I tried for two days to get a really good macro of a nice autumns leaf. I had a hard time because the light were tricky and such... And most cool leaf were gone by the time I got the time to have my autumns photo rampage. But I made it at last. :) You can always take the image to a photo-store for development... ;) (If you want to I can send you a less compressed version, it would still be 1600x1200 though.)

This is definitely one of those images that needs to be seen full sized to really appreciate its delicate beauty.

A Photograph is more than a still image of the real, it is a doorway into the unreal, it allows you to see through the eyes of the photographer, and see how they see the life around them.
