This has the potential to be a great photo but there are several technical problems. First, it is overexposed. You can fix that by spot metering on one of the brighter areas of the scene. Second, it appears to be oversaturated. This in conjunction with the over exposure causes the leave to blend together. Third, the depth of field is too shallow.

Can you post the EXIF data and explain what, if any, post processing you did. The first two problems can be caused by improper post processing on the computer.

Thanks, Cal. EXIF is as follows:

1/300 sec
F/3.5
F/L 45mm
ISO 200
Program A-E
Multi Metering Mode
Date 20/10/2006, 9:14 AM
Fuji S5200

Because the sun was very bright and just to the right of my field of view, glare in the EVF prevented me from accurately judging DOF, so this was actually kind of a shot in the dark - I was surprised it turned out at all. Other than a bit of cropping, there was no PP applied to this shot.

Thanks for your input, Cal. I'm always learning something from these forums.:-)
