Texture Tuesday: A Single, Old leaf

As simple and common as they are, dried leaves are one of my favorite subjects to photograph. I especially like them shown singly on a simple background and I think they work especially well for adding textures.

I have had this leaf for about a year--I had kept it in a shoe box; why I kept it, I am not sure, but it amazes me that it retained its shape.


This image was textured with two layers of  Kim's 'simple1' (one with the screen blend mode and one with multiply) and one layer of Kim's 'hsh' at with the linear burn blend mode). The texture layers were  partially masked off the leaf.
