    this is so good. how much pre-planning do you do? or do you just snap away? just excellent.

    Yeah this works really well with the light shining through the leaves. Love the saturation too.

    James – It depends. Sometimes I just snap away, but usually I envision what I want: light, shapes, subjects, etc. Appreciate the input.

    Lucy – Thanks. I love this kind of shot, because the sunlight brings out all the details in the leaves. In this case, the leaves were just glowing. It was hard to resist. And the E100VS (the VS stands for “very saturated”) really made the colors pop. I just love this film.

    No problem. Yeah, I can’t wait till things really start blooming. We have a nice botanical garden here.

  6. Damn, such vibrant colours. Makes me want to pick up film again, if my cameras weren’t broken. 😦

  7. What a stunning photograph. I’ll be returning often to see your latest work. If you’re based in NY, I recommend a trip to the NY Botanical Garden to photograph the orchid show.

    Frag – That’s too bad. Of course, good film cameras are pretty inexpensive these days. Thanks for stopping by.

    Evan – Thanks. I appreciate the input.

    Chris, glad you posted a comment on my blog…I’m happy to have found your site. I love the light in this shot as well as the dark shadows and I really like how the blue contrasts with the green.

  13. I am just starting to poke around your site — with great interest! This one’s colors make it so unusual and really delicious… I like the b&w buildings that I just looked at as well..

  14. Dee – Thanks. I’m kind of a fan of black and white architectural photography.
