WHITFIELDIA ELONGATA "WHITE CANDLES" LEAF, CHICAGO BOTANIC GARDEN, GLENCOE, ILLINOIS, JANUARY 27, 2011
Tamron SP AF 90mm DI Macro
1/4 sec. f32
Another image captured for the macrophotography class I'm taking at the Chicago Botanic Garden, this one is of the leaf of the Whitfieldia shrub whose bud was on display yesterday. This time I stopped way down, to the smallest aperture of the macro lens, and used a slower ISO speed to maximize image quality. A little tweaking in Lightroom 3 intensified the veins and the colors.
