2013 APRIL SET SUBJECT "COLOURFUL" - queenstownphotographyclub

"LONESOME LEAF" by ALISON METHERELL; Grade: Accepted.
Another autumn leaf subject with lots of potential. The leaf is a bit manky but that’s OK but
the background is cluttered and distracting, and I’d crop in quite hard on the leaf itself. The
leaf is also not quite as crisp as it should be, which is understandable given the aperture
of f5/6 and a shutter speed of 1/40th of a second. It must have been a bit dark as the ISO
was 400. I would go that much higher than that on a 350D but ISO 500 would have given
you more room to move, and f/6 and a shutter speed of at least 1/80th of a second was
needed here to sharpen things up.
