This is a shot I edited in NIK Silver Efex Pro 2. I tried to create a dark and dramatic look, and bring out the lines in the leaf while still keeping the texture smooth. For the most part I think it worked.
I was using my new 35mm f/2 IS lens on both of these photos. The detail it shows is really great for a non-L lens.
This is another shot from the same day. I think f/5.6 was not stopping down enough to get a good depth of field. Otherwise it turned out good. It’s just amazing what a transformation my boring leaf drops photos can take in software!
