Leaves in the Autumn, Two Ways

For this One Photo, Two Ways challenge I have decided to stick with running my current collection of November leaves through various photo apps.

Yellow Ginko Leaves in November in Vancouver’s Chinatown.

Scans of the big-leafed Rodgersia. The leaves are about 10″ (22 cm) across and wouldn’t have fit on my scanner if they hadn’t been curled up in decay.

Stackables, then Pixlromatic. scan of big-leafed Rogersia in the fall in the photo app Stackablesscan of big-leafed Rogersia in the fall in the photo app PixlromaticBoth Stackables. scan of big-leafed Rogersia in the fall in the photo app Stackablesscan of big-leafed Rogersia in the fall in the photo app StackablesThe Leaf Blower 2-Step Dance, both run through the photo app Stackables. Normally I hate leaf-blowers, they’re so noisy. But this guy was having so much fun dancing across the pavement with the colourful  leaves swirling around him. the leaf blower 2-step dance run through the photo app Stackablesthe leaf blower 2-step dance run through the photo app StackablesThis is what happens when the leaf-blowers don’t run around creating havoc; the sidewalk at Granville and 7th was completely covered with a fall collage of red Maple leaves.

  1. Snapseed is a favourite app of mine and Pixlr. I haven’t use stackables so thanks for introducing me. I so love the red maple leaves but truly all your photos are magnificent. A joy to see. How do u use a scanner?

    • I just lay the leaf on the scanner and don’t close the lid as it would have crushed these crispy leaves. This way you get a dark background; you can also lay a piece of interesting paper or fabric on top for a different background. The scanner should be quite clean or lots of white dots will show up in the scan – mine wasn’t as clean as it should have been, and so I had to use a light touch of the dust and scratches filter in Photoshop to correct it.
