Banana Leaves

We like how this photograph turned out. The brightest part of the image is in sharp focus (see the computer background or use the zoom controls on the image at the bottom of the page) but the other leaves are soft while still retaining their important details. There are many diagonal lines at many angles and yet they are well organized. The image is both abstract and recognizable - if you're familier with the plant. Some of the leaves are backlit, some are front-lit and a few are in shadow. It makes a great print!

Photography notes:

This picture shown is a crop from a vertical photograph. The effective focal length would be something like 160mm. The original image is at the bottom of this page.

You can zoom in on this image to see the detail in the full image, however this is highly compressed and the original has better contrast and sharpness.
