I photographed this leaf and started this composition in 2009. I had tucked it away, but always admired this image in my memory. I rediscovered the image file in 2022, and I remastered it to make this compelling print with great color.
The depth of field is shallow, so sections of the undulating leaf are tack-sharp and loaded with detailed texture while other sections transition gently into softness. The curl of the leaf on the edges is a nice touch. For the background texture, it is a stained leather book cover on an antique book, colorized to the contrasting cyan/blue. For the deckled edge look, I tore a piece of watercolor paper and photographed it. Camera: Canon 30D or 40D.
