[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
So technically this isn't a black and white, it's sepia... or monotone, whatever you want to call it. Anyhow, I took this picture in the middle of the woods on a very cloudy day. For a few brief seconds, a really bright beam of sunlight came through the clouds and hit everything in the spot of woods I was in. I started looking around me for something to shoot, and I thought this leaf (which was at about eye level for me) looked beautiful, the way it had really bright and really dark spots on it. I also liked the way the shadows on the leaf give it so much texture ... from the veins of the leaf to the tiny hairs. Sometimes with my camera in macro mode, the DOF it selects is really shallow.. .fortunately this time it selected a slightly longer DOF so that more of the leaf is in focus.

Hi Brain,
I love the DOF in this photo. Great adaption of the color. I would have angled it slightly more forwards.
