Thoughts regarding these? Spotted the leaf with an edge snared by the bark of a pine tree.

Anyway, comments appreciated. Re-works not necessary.

Thanks for looking,

Bob

I'm curious why you chose the bark to be sharp rather than the leaf or both?

Haste and sloppy processing. And I didn't want to take it head-on like all of us have done before.

And frankly, I've gotten out of the habit of using CS6 in favor of convenience of LR - a situation I need to correct. You are, of course, correct - one or the other but not both, in this case I'd choose the leaf - and easily corrected in post. The near edge of plane of focus runs through mid-leaf, not apparent at this size.

Taking all into account, marginal work IMO. I do like the processing "look" though, and, it's not BW Prefer #2.

Thanks for your observation

Regards,

Bob

Nice find but I find myself wanting more. I did a re-work to bring more attention to the leaf.
