Fiddle leaf fig
Lens: Pentax-M 135mm f3.5 Camera: Pentax K1 Photo Location: Indoors, Cookham ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F3.5

Used the K1's spot meter reading to read for the exposure and it darkened the extremities of the scene nicely.

I like the suggestion of there being something else there, besides the leaf itself...

Clever use of the meter. The lines remind me of newsprint... what's your secret? Like it a lot.

Thank you for your kind comment. The lines are the shadows of small sticks of the bamboo blind - the room faces west and the sun shines through until late.

I have to say that the camera's spot meter on the K1 does wonders for isolating a subject - if you get it right, and this can be a challenge at times!
