For a slideshow click HERE. When you click the link, it will open in a new window and you have two options:
1) Manually scroll through the photos by clicking the “<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos.
2) There’s a PLAY/PAUSE button at the bottom-left of the screen with the transition set at about 5 seconds. Note: clicking the PLAY arrow will run a full-screen slideshow. You can then still use the”<” and “>” symbols to the left or right of the photos as this will pause the slideshow.

I named this the “leaves files” but most of these are plants . . . but, plants have leaves, right?

First off, we have a lightly processed shot of Lotus plants in a pond at The King Shops at Waikoloa.

The editing is fairly mild as I brightened the shot and lightened some of the shadows. 

This next shot aimed to add a bit of drama to the scene . . . 

Of course, the whole point of these exercises is to come up with different looks for mundane subjects . . . 

I don’t mind that look but prefer this next one from a different photo . . . 

And, again, maybe add a bit of a noir look to it might amuse . . . 

Next up, I saw this leaf on the walkway and liked the rays of sunshine falling all around it . . . 

I also gave it a grungy B&W treatment . . . 

This is a short post but that’s life . . . plus, many won’t mind. 

I say that because this is the last photo of this series. It’s of a fern growing next to the trunk of a tree.

That shot has many other possibilities. possibilities I might explore some other time. 

Thanks for visiting.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
