Can you see the fractal patterns on the leaves?
I often overlook little things like this. As landscape photographer, I prefer wide vistas and dramatic light – but tiny landscapes like these are just a fascinating. When I looked at this leaf, I didn’t notice its individual veins, but a 180mm Macro opened up another world entirely.
This is a focus stacked image. Working with a macro lens means my depth of field is very limited. I used my Live View focusing mechanism and took a few shots to ensure that every part of the photo was in focus. Later, I combined those photos in Photoshop. Do the dew drops appear 3-dimensional? I used my jacket and camera bag to produce shadows so those droplets stand out against the flat surface of the leaf.
