Title: “Red leaf”

Contributor: Yellowj


Why we like it: Shots of leaves and foliage lit from behind are now commonplace. We get plenty – including many that are technically perfect and showcase the unique patterns and textures of a semi-transparent leaf.


This example from Yellowj (his second IOTD! Congrats!) is not only sharp and well-executed, it outpaces the field in terms of aesthetic value. The diagonal red striping and the variation in the green tone make this look more like a watercolor painting than a macro photograph. Very nice!


Be sure to check out the rest of Yellowj’s portfolio. He’s been uploading plenty of exceptional content lately!
