I bought my first plant here in Puerto Rico.
Love new growth on a plant...and having a macro lens to capture it with.
Leaves intrigue me.
Can you see the above leaf's reflection (or is it a shadow?) in the water?
We had rain today.
These next pics show the difference camera settings can make.
The poinsettia is on the second floor balcony; I'm pointing the camera down towards the ground fence.
f/22.0 ISO 2500
f/9.0 ISO 500
f/4.5 ISO 100
The resulting bokeh (blur) of a low f stop allows the subject to shine instead of getting lost in the background noise.
I changed my angle and used the green trees on the other side of the fence as my background.
I hope the poinsettia likes its new home.
f/2.8 ISO 100
Negative space bring such simplicity and clarity to an image.
