Wow! A ribbon on my very first member's challenge... No pressure now, no.. none at all!

This was taken at 3:30pm BST on Sunday in my backyard -- a last ditch attempt at an entry. Needless to say I'm surprised at how well it did!

Thanks for the great comments and the votes!

This is one of the most beautiful shots in the challenge. The lighting is spectacular and your choice of depth of field is perfect to accentuate the "number".

very nice 3 on the leaf
03/16/2003 04:05:54 AM
No way to miss that one. Another leaf part (or anything else) on the other side of the image would have perhaps better balanced this image. 8

Great use of depth of field, and the greens are very brilliant and pretty.

I like the openess in the shot. The green-on-green is good.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Yes...it's a three, and pretty too. I love foliage pictures. Well seen, and well done. If I'd change anything, it would probably be to have less negative space. I still like it.

Good lighting and exposure. The colors are nice too. I'm not sold on the framing and I think this is a little softer than it should be. Not a bad photo overall.

Dramatic use of 'empty' space, nice dof, good job meeting the challenge. 7

Setting off the edge with the dark and unfocused background works well here...I would like it better if you cropped with less space on the left side...there's too much of a shape back there that makes me want to know what's going on back there instead of focusing on the "three"....still a nice image though...one of my favorites for this challenge.

a perfect 3 and a very nice shot. simple and to the point. (pun intended) lol. it's a little overexposed on the edge of the leaf, however, i think that's to your advantage because it helps to bring out the 3. the angle and framing/cropping is excelent. I love the neg. space to the left. the background is very nicely blurred and not distracting at all. an excelent shot. good luck in the challenge.

Excellent! Love the DOF on this with the very blurry background. Good job.

Very nicely seen. Great DOF. Composition is excellent. Colours are great. My pic for the winner.

Excellent capture and an outstanding macro shot.

Well done -- kudos! Nice DOF, too.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Wonderful capture and the DOF is very good, very shallow. This is my favourite shot for the challenge and will definitely bit up there in the ribbons.

Love how you captured the light at just the right curves on the ivy (?) to
emphasize the number 3.
