I just figured out I didn't post any macro for quite some time; so I decided to go out this past tuesday and make some. Adjustments are relatively basics here, I tried to enhance colors from an initial much more dull picture, to get a result closer to “what I've seen”.

This picture was taken in the Landes region (France). To avoid an high contrast due to the direct sunlight, I've made shadows above the subject. The resulted picture was nice but too dull, so I've adjusted the picture this way (you can compare we the original photo right above, by using the comparison feature).

I've deliberately used a very thin depth of field (ƒ3.5) to effectively enhance the outline of each leaf. I've made a test with a low aperture (higher ƒ); the result was way different, way less graphic and pleasant — at least for me —.
