Last Leaves

Nikon D7500, 35.0mm, 1/500 sec., f/1.8, ISO 200

So last week, or maybe the week before, I decided to just use a prime lens and see what I could get. Since I only own one prime lens the choice was easy. I wish finding a subject was that easy though. I believe I took 47 photographs, and, at least for now, I think this was the best of them. It was at then end of my walk and this set of leaves caught my eye. I opened the lens to the maximum aperture to achieve the low depth of field, and cropped the final edit to a square. I reduced the saturation around the leaves to bring the out a little.

Fallen Tree

Nikon D7500, 16.0-80.0mm @34.0 mm, 1/60 sec., f/5.6, ISO 400

Took a walk on the path near my house last week in hopes of finding a nice composition. As the weather was overcast and we are in the middle of winter, I decided to look for some unusual tree formations. While this tree is obviously dead, the way it had fallen over and was propped up by its branches.
