[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went to the Cameron Highlands again to enjoy the cool weather there. Going into the nearby bushes along the winding road, I saw this corrugated leaf dierectly under the sublight. Since it was a lone one protruding out of its branch, it gives a good pattern with distance bokeh.
I do not know what species it was, it was quite big, as big as Asian man's palm.

Hallo Foozi
Due to minor surgery done to my foot, my time is restricted in front of the computer; I do however want to compliment you on this rather unusual (in a small way) but really beautiful capture of the glowing leaf. The colour is warm and really striking. The sunlight did justice to the final outcome of this wonderful subject. Best regards.

Hi Foozi

A very interesting and very lovely capture of this cup shaped leave. You have captured
excellent details and the diagonal placing of the leave renders a great composition. The
exposure was well controlled and the colour saturation is very natural.

Well done and TFS.

Hello Foozi,
A wonderful capture with fine use of a light, of this red leaf. The sharpness is excellent and the POV great to allow the leaf to stand out against the dark neutral Bg with a fine effect.
Thanks and best wishes,

Ciao Foozi. Intrigant transparencies against the dark BG. Very good DOF and perfect details. Indeed a nice compo.


Hello Foozi,
Hope life is good in 2010. This really a wonderful shot of this equally beautiful and wonderful leaf. Yes, quite big and how beautifully designed. Seems like a net or an elongated basket and all so colourful.The patterns are exquisite and the light and shade marvelous plus the BG which enhances its beauty...thanks for sharing and thanks for your support friend...take care...warmest regards/Abid
