Natural landscapes: in the colourful shade
AUTUMN LEAVES, WATSON STREET PARK, LONDON, ONTARIO
Following the paths in this urban park guided me to a surprise wetland. This was one of the pictures I made there; I like how the background is brighter than the leaves, but the leaves retain detail and colour. The shallow depth of field was vital here, to make the background a gentle wash of colour that helps the leaves stand out.
Nikon D7100, tripod, 70-300-mm. zoom lens, fill-flash, (probably) a polarizing filter
