20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Unfurling leaf

This is a composite image of an indoor shot of an oakleaf overlaid with a photo that I had taken of bronze patina. For the past three years I have been interested in combining plant and natural images with structural forms and textures. These structural forms/textures are sometimes manmade and sometimes natural. I therefore create an image that is different from, but suggestive of a new natural form.
