“Japanese Maple” – Using The Orton Method

This is a older image created back in 06 of some Japanese Maple leaves.
I enjoy getting up under or within a clump of trees/shrubs and shooting outwards, capturing various compositions, and playing with the blurred backgrounds.
A ever so slight touch of the “Orton Method” was used with this image, giving it a overall softness that I liked.
