Dark Symmetry

This palm left caught my eye as I walked along the narrow path that took to the little beach a mile down from our resort in Mexico last week. I have photographed palm leaves before but I wanted to try again, this time concentrating on the radial pattern and also trying to manipulate depth of field.

I’ll have to admit that there is a little Photoshop manipulation in the final product, including the application of a couple of my favorite filters in Color Efex Pro 4 and in the OnOne Photo Suite. But I’m not telling which ones. 🙂
