How did I get this shot??
I was out photographing the fall colors at a nearby park and came across this scene below. I’ve always wanted to photograph a leaf in mid-flight against a background of fall colors and yesterday I got my chance!
I know there are several photographers that follow this and I want to throw the question out and see if anyone can guess how I got this shot? The 2nd image is a zoom of 100%+ of the leaf. There was a tree directly above me and a slight breeze causing leaves to fall. Nothing was photoshopped (added or removed) and the only editing was to enhance the saturation a bit.
Camera settings: 50mm f/1.8 lens, f/2.5 @ 1/250 sec, ISO 400
I’ll post the answer in a day or so once you have a chance to weigh in. I’ll possibly send you a free image if you guess how!
