Hello dear friends,

Raspberries are gone...light is still there!

The next annonced Friday's theme is about light.
As, I will not be at home next days, I would liked to submit this photo taken last october.
I shot against the light here.
(EV: -1 2/3)

RAW photo converted in JPG. I used Digital photo Professional for the essential of work and PS CS 5 for bringing more luminosity (curves).

Thanks at members who gave idea for Friday's theme. They are great contributors at the site. I am in hurry to see your entries!

Hi Aniie,
Nice lighting on this foliage with good use of shallow DOF in this macro shot.
I like the details on these leaves and such a horizontal emerging into the presentation.
Very interest work!

Belle interprétation du thème sur la lumière, j'aime beaucoup le titre également.
C'est avec une extrême délicatesse que tu as photographié ces branches de framboisier.
La lumière est douce et accompagne le regard.
Très bonne netteté et rendu des couleurs.
J'aime beaucoup.

Olá annie
Powerful light comes from your photo...I almost just see the light in these beautiful green texture.I accept te frame and in I think thatit helps to increase the beaty of the image.

Um abraço

Hello Annie, this is such a 3 dimensional shot, the leaves are coming out of my screen!
You have captured a lovely light on the leaves of the raspberry plant.
Good shallow DoF,the texture of the leaves is very apparent, as are the thorns on the stem,ouch!
Good framing too.
Tfs,regards Jean.

Hi Annie,
Nice lighting & good use of shallow DOF.I like the details on these leaves. Well done.

Hi Jean,

Nice shot and presentation of your vision of "Light" One can never see light, but we see what the light hit...
Good POV, showing the leafs with the light on the upper third, great bokeh and a wonderful shot... TFS

Hi Annie
Faboulous close up!
Superb details and sharp shot!
Amazing POV and powerful bokeh with delicate colors!

Hi annie,
a great close up. The colors ar eperfect and so is the texture that you captured here.

Yes Annie .. the light here is fantastic! The colors are rich and nicely saturated, and very nice use of shallow DOF. Beautiful!
Hope you're having a good autumn :)

Dear Annie,

This is a lovely closeup shot with amazing focus and light!
The sharpness and POV are excellent, and clarity is well shown.
The contrast to the blurred BG is well kept.
Nice work!


Bravo Annie pour ce travail réalisé avec minutie.
Fantastique composition ordonnée.
Séduisante interprétation du feuillage entre floue douceur et netteté.
Une embellie pour les yeux. Parfait.

Ola Annie,
Great entrance to the theme with an amazing sharpness, a perfect light management, and an elegant composition.
«Perfection» is the only word that occurs to my mind.
Have a great time my friend, mb

Bonjour Annie,
La lumière a travaillé très belle dans cette image et nous voyons la lumière comme largement responsable de la beauté de cette scène que est l'une des meilleures contributions sur le thème de cette semaine.
Belle photo.

Bonjour Anie
très jolie composition , le regard est emmené là où tu le veux par le jeu subtil de la netteté et du flou
Bon week end Annie

Hello Annie

Well done on the entire image. Very hard to isolate one branch and come out with a masterpiece such as this. Bravo

Hi Annie,
what a lovely shot.I liked light and horizontal presentation in here.Congratulations.TFS.Necla.

Beautiful Annie! I love your recent work with bokehs and flowers! This is very nice, super shot without any OE on the leaves, but the contrasts are really nice!

Lovely use of DOF Annie. It is interesting the longer one looks at this it becomes 3 dimensional. Congratulations.
