Pink Gerbera Leaf in Water, by Ola Cedell

The photo was taken as a part of an assignment in the course Exploring Perception. I used a bowl of water and a Gerbera flower as the background, the subject was a leaf that was floating with a water droplet. The photo was useing indirect sunlight. Exposure: Camera was set to aperture priority. To get a interesting depth of field the aperture was set to f/4, the matrix / pattern metering mode was used, hence exposure compensation was set to -0.3EV to avoid overexposure the subject. Manual focus was used.
