The image for this image originally started a week ago while testing out my new D300. I took several macro shots outside around my house not really paying attention or planning them.

While I was reviewing them later I came across a beatuiful although blurry image of a cluster of leaves from one of our trees and I really thought it filled the frame well.

On chance I decided to see how it would look inverted and I fell in love and knew I had my submission idea. I went out today and took about 20 shots from different angles and finally decided on this as the only acceptable shot.

I've been gone from DPC a long time and I have no idea how this will do, I'm hoping for a lot but not expecting it. :)
I think I just must have odd tastes.
