This photograph is cropped from a larger image. During post processing, I wavered between the full landscape-oriented image and this version which is portrait-oriented and is cropped down two-thirds the original size. At least for this post, the focus is on the details of the primary corn lily leaf with the leaf shadow. The other out of focus leaves provide a softer texture while the gap between the leaves gives some negative space in the midst of all the lines.
EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center-weighted metering mode, ISO100, 300mm, f/5.6, 1/10 sec
