About the Image(s)

DATA; Nikon D700 with Nikon 105D macro lens on tripod.
ISO 200 --- 1/3 second @ f/11 --- cloudy.

Maker's Aims and Comments:
Photographed on the back deck at home. Gathered various fall color leaves from around our landscaping, placed them in a shallow container and filled container with water. The leaves are under water. Had problems with the gray cloudy sky reflecting in the water and the polarizing filter did not help. I used a high intensity LED flashlight held at about a 45 degree angle to light the leaves, this eliminated the gray sky reflection. The original has some black areas between several of the leaves, while the finished version does not. Which version do you prefer ?? Post processed in Elements.
