Day Five. Fall Leaf.
Strange as it seems, I find taking pictures of fall colors really hard. Either the pictures are so cliche they are uninteresting, or they are just uninteresting. So I'm kind of surprised this one works for me. It was a little windy yesterday evening, but I think the light was just bright enough that I could get a fast shutter speed. The aperture was wide open (f/2.7), thus a very narrow field of focus. It was a happy mistake that I got the most interesting part in focus, it could just as easily been the tip of the leaf, which wouldn't have been as pretty.
