I took this photograph in my backyard after a rain storm using my 100-400mm lens and EOS 40D. In the original version out of the camera, the leaves are a vibrant green. While I liked the color version, I felt that the photograph might be improved if converted to black and white, with a split tone effect. I also changed the aspect ratio to a square to emphasize the two leaves in the center of the picture. I made all edits in Adobe Lightroom 4.
