[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of my older photos. This is a photo of an autumn leaf backlit using a light box. The colour in this photo is the natural colour of the leaf. I took several leaf photos designed to examine leaf colour and texture

Hi Karan,
Another fine example of your study of leaf color and texture. Especially the texture in this photo is beautiful. I did had some doubts about the holes, but they are there, and that is nature.

I really like the composition and the colors on this image, karan.
Excellent sharpness too.
TFS. : )

Interesting andtract you made from a simple leaf, very good picture.
I don't know why but I have a feeling that cropping a little bit from the upper part will balance the composition, only my opinion.

Hi Karan,
Great close-up picture of leaf surface, clearly shown pattern of leaf vein. Color is also nice. Great shot.

Hello Karan, this is a good image. The colours are excelllent and the patterns are super. I think a little more DOF would be good here as I personally would like to see it all sharp in focus and the top left is dropping out a little. Very nice idea, well done.

*I've turned off my points, I cannot recieve and I cannot give. I'm sorry for the latter*

Hello Karan,
This is very interesting shot of the leaf structure. I like the colours, lights&shades a lot.

Hi Karan,
Nice light, detail, and natural color, showing the leafs texture nicely..Well deserved :)
Well done and TFS!

Hi Karan,
I like photos of texture very much.
This one is beautiful too. What kind of leaf was it? With a light box, what a good idea!I have a similar one from a ficus lyrata but green. I don't think this is such a leaf but the patern is similar. I think I would present it verticaly.
Well done and TFS

Hi Karan,
I like the way you tilt the leaf, adds dynamics!
Well framed, beautiful patterns with good colours and fine details...
Pablo -

This is a very moody and pleasant texture. You got a great soft transparency with the back light, and chose a beautiful subject. I like very much transparencies.
If you use the sun for the BLight, you get more severe results like this :)
Regards, Felipe.
