What is 505050?

The idea is to use a 50mm lens to take one shot a day for 50 consecutive days. The images posted will be unmodified ... well, I'll convert them from RAW into JPEG, but that's all. Some images may benefit for a bit of a twiddle and they will appear either on my flickr pages or my blog. Have fun looking over my attempts and please make comments and offer encouragement to complete the 50 day project.

Shot #9

Autumn is upon us here in New Zealand and the leaves are changing.  Each year we seem to get significantly more leaves on the ground than there ever appeared to be on the trees!  I'm often taken by the shapes and colours of the leaves and this evening noticed this rather strange leaf on which the green has remained along the leaf veins.  In an attempt to ensure there was a reasonable depth of field I used f8 and I think most of the "stuff" in the image is in focus.

Interesting image, or a pile of rubbish?  Perhaps you can let me know :-)

50mm, f8, 1/25second, ISO 200.


  1. The green-veined leaf is good. It is interesting to try and "re-see" simple things by looking at them in close-up. I wanted more vibrant lighting, but I guess that is just not how it is in "everyday mode". The texture is still quite good.

  2. It's quite interesting how you can see the potential in an image either by cropping, changing saturation or focus. However, in this project I'm avoiding any of the twiddles :-)
