Paper Wings #1

I am exploring and developing my macro photography at the moment. I will be posting this and 3 other images as part of a series called "Paper Wings". I would very much like to hear what your thoughts are, more importantly what your initial reactions are.

I can say that my initial reaction was that you shot a leaf here. Interesting angle chosen for a piece of paper.
Jide Alakija: It does have a leafy feel to it. Thanks.

The paper edge is so crisp. I have a friend also experimenting with macro, he has a 60mm macro lens. I saw some shots he took...pretty interesting.
Jide Alakija: I'd very much like to see these shots. I've used the 60mm Macro before and I didn't really find it an easy lens to use.
Great picture! Beautiful.
Jide Alakija: Thanks Frank
