I love these leaf photographs and the amount of detail that makes up the fragile structure of the leaf. There are so many interconnecting lines that make up a sort of road map from the larger central lines which branch out into smaller and smaller lines until the entire leaf is formed into a shape.

Photographed on wax paper to give a grungy background and backlit on an iPad. Final adjustments in Photoshop with the help of NIK software.
