Challenge: Calendar II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Nikon D300
Lens: Nikon AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 17-55mm f/2.8G IF-ED
Location: Melbourne Australia
Date: Feb 23, 2009
Aperture: F10
ISO: 1000
Shutter: 1/125 second
Galleries: Black and White, Macro
Date Uploaded: Feb 22, 2009

The Image: Put the autumn leaf in a ceramic dish and froze it. It wasn't frozen through, but worked OK overall. Shot raw with my brother in law's 17-55 2.8 Nikon, which is perfect! ISO1000 handheld.

The Edit: Massaged this. Black and white layer, then various tints with masking, levels adjustment layer to get the dark edges with masking, some sharpening and noise reduction, curves layers, levels layers etc...I like the final result.

The Prediction: Not sure. Haven't done particularly well lately. 6.2???

Post: Did better than I thought...so, well done Enz!

Gorgeous picture. The b/w, the shadows, very textured lighting on the leaf and the background. A real standout for me.
