Week 40 good to WOW SOOC Leaves

This week's theme for shoot and edit is leaves.  The nice thing about having a prompt ahead of time is it increases my creativity as I take pictures I wouldn't normally think to do.  The problem with knowing the prompt too far in advance is you end up with a million pictures of that item...okay, 500.  I've narrowed it down to 4.  You would think with 500 pictures I'd have one that was awesome SOOC, but while my photo taking is improving...I had a loooooong way to go.  So these photos are chosen because they were fun, taken with this prompt in mind, and for some a bit different from any one else's photos will be.



Now show us your leaf photos and link up your SOOC with Jill and your edit's on Thursday with Ashley.  It is a fantastic way to grow in your photography and editing!

I really like the last 2 photos, is that a real leaf in the last one?

I love the first picture...that leaf that is just floating in mid-air.

And the third one is incredible!

Of course, I wholeheartedly disagree with you about having a loooooooong way to go with your photo skills. :)

But, you already know that!

P.S. I'm glad you like Oscar the Grouch....I have always preferred Snuffaluffagus (sp), but I fear I am nothing like that mild mannered monster. :)

Did you get all my crazy comments on your back posts? You kept me well entertained while sick!

I know what you mean...although I rarely plan ahead. Love your third shot.

A nice photo with those leaves forming a beautiful mantle, deliciously autumnal.

Okay- I completely hear you on how you feel about your SOOC shots. I OFTEN feel like that. However- these are AMAZING- you should be so proud to show them off. I really love that 3rd one & a jaw dropping wow on that last one!

LOL - I so know what you're talking about. These are stunning! I think I love the last one. So pretty!

Michelle said...

Gasp!! That last one!!! Wow! Love the colors, the light, the glow!! That 2nd to last one is pretty cool -- however I would have either held the camera either almost at ground level, or been directly over them. :)

Beautiful photos! I love the colors in the last two and the depth of field in the 2nd to the last one. Thank you for sharing!
