This was my entry that came last in one of the Plano Photography Club (PPC) contests.
A few months ago I attended a workshop on tabletop photography. That was the first time I seriously got to explore shooting articles on a tabletop, and also trying external flashes. We had subjects like toys, flowers and dried leaves. When we were trying to capture dried leaves with sprinkled glycerin-water droplets, I noticed this glass in the corner of the room and I wanted to experiment putting the leaf inside the glass. Then I added the green light from behind with my mini-torch I usually carry. I really liked the outcome, which is what you see here in this post.
This PPC contest was open to any kind of photography, i.e., no specific theme. Having finished that workshop and assuming that I have come up with a really good composition I submitted this to that contest. The judge however totally disliked it stating the image contained nothing good - no proper lighting; not enough depth; and, not enough details. Ha ha! Anyway, I really liked this and here I share it with you all, opening it for more comments/criticism. Thanks.
Yep about as much as you’d expect when you come late to the wipe, had a really fun stream this morning appreciated everyone who tuned in ❤️ if you missed it you can still check it out on my twitch page. cheers legends

Root smudge and slight color correction to freshen up this blonde and get rid of former highlight lines 🌟
