Gilded beauty by AliquidLucis Gilded beauty by AliquidLucis
What a beautiful golden light we had on Thursday afternoon. I almost didn't know what to shot first until I saw this beautiful leaf on the ground. You can clearly see all these little delicate veins. So fragile! Nature amazes me everytime. :heart:

Important note: This photo isn't edited at all! No Lightroom was used. Just my signature's added with Photoshop.

Hop you enjoy it. :)


WOHA! This is my 2nd DD! I can't believe it! Thank you so much dudes! :happybounce:

Certainly trumps my 1100D. 
What lens is this, if I may ask? 
That is, if it isn't a prime 100mm.

Pardon my curiosity, but is it or is it not rude to ask questions like this? From the way you've written your comment you make it sound as if the equipment did the work and not the photographer, and I've heard that that is considered rude/disrespectful/other bad things to the  photographer. Asking because I'm genuinely curious.

Oh, I apologize greatly for the long wait for this response. I wouldn't view it as disrespectful, for good reason: The photo itself, and how well it works is thanks to the photographer themself, however, you can be limited by your equipment, just as a painter is by his choice of paint.

The reason I've said this beats my 1100D is because the photo quality (which is decided by the quality of the camera sensor, not the photographer) is higher on this deviant's camera. (I have a 1100D, also known as a Rebel T3. They have a 600D, which is a Revel T3i, which is one generation higher than mine, and has a much better sensor). 

I meant nothing about the equipment doing the work, but in the case of photography, your equipment (or the things you use around you) will definitely decide how far you can go. That isn't so say you need to spend millions, but photography is considered the most expensive art style for a reason. While a skilled photographer could make something amazing using any camera, I simply meant that the actual virtual quality of this photo was much better than any that my camera could come up with.

If that makes sense :D I apologize for the seemingly brash wording of my previous comment.
