Bonsai in Autumn
Bonsai in Autumn

Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Bokeh III (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Nikon D200
Lens: Nikon MF Micro-Nikkor 200mm f/4.0 IF AIS
Location: Portland (Oregon) Japanese Garden
Date: Oct 21, 2006
Aperture: F11
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/8
Date Uploaded: Oct 24, 2006

Out-of-focus leaves in the background add autumn colors to the foreground bonsai tree. The intent is is to be somewhat abstract and feature the colors and textures, hence no attempt was made to have the entire bonsai tree in the frame. The turning maple provides a colorful backdrop, but is diffuse enough so that the tree stands out.

Processing steps: USM to increase contrast, resize, USM to sharpen, save for web. That's all.

I think the leaves are bit too much in focus here
