Fourth in my Acer Palmatum series. Like waves in a sea of red leaves. 50mm f/1.8 II!

Looking forward to the grand finale of the series in 3 days, it's going to be great!

That is looking good, I love how the colours seem to literally fly through the picture, how the whole piece seems to almost play with the vision of the viewer. Those in-focus and out-of-focus parts really keep my eye dancing around.

Very well done, it feels like music :nod:

I really don't know what to say, Andy. There's just so much to this piece that just makes me fall in love every single time I take even the slightest glance at it.

The whole composition looks brilliantly well set out - almost calculated. It's really beautiful.
The sharpness of the small twigs amidst the hazy blur of colour just highlights the delicacy, and really brings out a gentle and soft feeling to the image.

The contrast between the gorgeous warm Autumn colours of the leaves and that of the pale sky in the background really pushes forth the colour.
Each ring of droolsome bokeh-ness just merges the colours together, creating a busy image, but one that is a real joy to look at. And I must say that the blur around the leaves adds little "wisps" of lines, which again soften the image and enhance the delicacy.

What can I say? You might think I'm praising this too much, but to me, this is photography at its best.

Fantastic piece, Andy - I really do love it to bits. :heart:

Pretty pretty Andy. It almost looks like smoke weaving through the leaves. Another nice shot, although I think the first one is still my favourite. Looking forward to seeing what the final is like though! Keep it up :hug:
