Golden leaves look like autumn trees on a grassy hill.
I wanted to try something new. Being stuck creatively because of the VOG filled sky left me to play with macro compositions.
I had been walking by golden leaves that had fallen on the stained concrete for a few months now. I always thought leaves look like small trees and wanted to play with this idea. With the moss ground covering along the edges of the concrete pathway I lined some leaves along it to play with a tree on a hill concept. I took two different focal shots and stacked them in Photoshop for sharpness and then began working on darkening the background for depth.
It was a lot of fun trying to create a concept photograph. This exercise opened up my mind to a new way of photographing nature.
