Challenge: Transitions (Classic Editing)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix 2600Z
Location: My livingroom
Date: Apr 20, 2002
Aperture: 3.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 0.04 s
Date Uploaded: Apr 21, 2002

The picture speaks for itself: it shows the transition from a big healty green leave to a small dry dead one. Duh!

The leafs were arranged on a white sheet of paper and placed in difuse sunlight. The camera was in macro-mode and flash turned off. By using the manual exposure-compensation-settings of the camera, I overexposed the picture, causing the structure of the white paper to disappear and smoothening the shadows.
Just had to crop the image and resize it to 480x640.

After overexposing, did you fix the exposure back to get a good exposure on the leaves? I love this photo. :o)

Simple but powerful and great thought process. I love this photo. It is beautiful.

Beautyful! A bit flat lightning, though.

Awesome job. Nice colors and great lighting.
04/27/2002 08:53:00 PM
Perfect example of transition! Love this photo!
04/27/2002 04:33:00 PM
Very simplistic, could have been made slightly more interesting with different lighting.
04/27/2002 01:19:00 PM
what might this have looked like on black?
04/27/2002 11:01:00 AM
try saying that after a few beers....
04/27/2002 06:34:00 AM
really great still life. good color/composition. There is something about this that is so simple, yet so striking.
04/26/2002 04:11:00 PM
Nice composition. Mybe a little more cropping, I'm not sure though. It's beautiful.
04/26/2002 02:10:00 PM
Hmm...maybe half a lifeline? Nice leaves though -- what kind are they?
04/25/2002 08:23:00 PM
Pure and simple. nice
04/24/2002 04:29:00 PM
I like this shot, really simple idea, brilliantly executed.
04/24/2002 04:10:00 PM
nice composition.
04/24/2002 12:36:00 PM
nice and soft, you obviously have a better lighting situation than I do. the framing could be a littl more dramatic, but that's just a nitpick.
04/24/2002 10:06:00 AM
ooooooooo nice
04/24/2002 05:21:00 AM
This is a nice interpretation of the challenge. I like the way you have the leaves set up in a way that leads the eye downward to the conclusion.
04/23/2002 10:32:00 PM
Very nice.
04/23/2002 06:04:00 PM
Very rich in color :).
04/23/2002 05:59:00 PM
I think this is far the best way of handing this kind of subject.
04/23/2002 05:02:00 PM
Nice way to display transition.
04/23/2002 01:12:00 PM
Nice composition of the leaves
04/23/2002 12:44:00 PM

04/23/2002 10:25:00 AM

Nice and clear, good composition.
04/23/2002 04:39:00 AM
Excellent! Good job!
04/23/2002 03:53:00 AM
not normally the sort of picture I'd give a second glance to, but this was nicely presented and really uncluttered, and looks great.
04/22/2002 09:10:00 PM
very nice, this photo resembles the style of another plant life cycle photo, and hitis is just as compelling, nice job
04/22/2002 07:34:00 PM
Nice set up and compostion. Good focusing
04/22/2002 04:29:00 PM

04/22/2002 04:08:00 PM
classic, nice shadows
04/22/2002 03:21:00 PM
Excellent interpretation of the subject.
04/22/2002 01:37:00 PM
i really like the white background.
04/22/2002 01:36:00 PM
neat idea, very well done. i wonder what it would look like on a black background.
04/22/2002 12:30:00 PM
really good composition and color! bravo
04/22/2002 12:25:00 PM
nice progression and layout
04/22/2002 11:44:00 AM
Great shot! Nice layout and lighting, and very clear imagery of transition.
04/22/2002 11:38:00 AM
This would make a nice framed photo wouldn't it??
04/22/2002 10:12:00 AM
People like Action
04/22/2002 09:11:00 AM
Very clean lines and colours. I like it a lot. Would have turned the green leaf about 45degrees counter clockwise to keep the motion moving 'up'
04/22/2002 08:20:00 AM
04/22/2002 08:16:00 AM
a little too typical for my eyes
04/22/2002 07:53:00 AM
Very nicely done. The composition is perfect... as is most everything about the image
04/25/2002 01:05:00 PM
Perfect lighting, very clear
04/22/2002 12:42:00 AM
Beautiful contrast ! Wonderful framing. Color to die for ! I like this.
