Thanks!
This is a good example of photoshop really helping a mediocre shot.
It wouldn't normally be legal b/c I did a layer with gaussian blur and soft light to give the soft focus and really bring out the highlights. I also used dodge/burn some, but the highlights on the leaves were caused by the light coming in under the bridge from the right. Exposure compensation -1/3.
These are next to a train yard downtown. I didn't have much choice in composition because they're leaning against a bridge support... chainlink fence with a distracting background to the right and left.

There's a reason you're tops in my statistically favorite photographer list and this is it. I gave this a pure and unreserved 10 - you make the ivy look dangerous and alive. Good job.

As promised, this is going right on my Favorites list. I'm disappointed it didn't finish in the top, but it's still an amazing picture.

I love this soooo much and very clever! The selective focus and lighting are both superb and great a lovely atmosphere to the whole picture.10

I like this. The two old wheels give anice structure and the lighter leaves seem to stand out of the page.

This image is as if from a dream. I love the ethereal quality of the leaves, with the liquid dark behind them. Unreal.

Nicely soften image, you should have worked on showing off a little more these two weels as well.

So pretty. 10

yeah, this is really nice. the soft focus effects give this a very ghostly feel, and the tones just add too it. i love the selective light that really brightens up the center part of this. possibly my only gripe is that, after all, it is just a shot of some leaves with little else really giving it any impact, but the mood is such that it really works. good job. 8.
