Aspen leaf and shadow. I originally took a photo similar to this of an aspen leaf that had fallen in our birdbath. This one was more staged, I put a flat 12" x 12" pan in the sun with about 2" of water in it and with an old Epson printed background submerged in the water. I then tried about a dozen aspen leafs until I found one with the desired shadow pattern. I think it's kind of unique. I did have to do some clean up in Photoshop to remove debris that was in the water and the resulting spots. I did not in any way alter the aspen leaf or shadow except normal exposure, sharpening and a little saturation. All in LR. 

 

I love the way that light is refracted by the edge of the leaf. My take is it's differences in how the leaf lays on the water and the surface tension of the water affecting how far off the water the leaf is setting. Other thoughts?

 

Of course it was handheld in macro mode with the Q,

There's always a lot of macro subjects around the house. Love the flexibility of the Q. I wish that the LCD on the rear folded out to 90 degrees like my Fuji X100T and Sony RX 100 II does. Still, I love the Q.

Cong, Co. Mayo, west coast of Ireland, was where the film 'The Quiet Man' was filmed. There's a statue of the stars John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara ....

When I zoom in I can see the reflection of the pavement  and other stuff
