Ilinca Ciubotariu is first place winner for this week's SunShots theme "Signs of Fall" with her shot of a leaf caught in a fence. The photo was taken with a Nikon D5000, lens at 48mm, f5.6, 1/125 sec. and ISO 360. Baltimore Sun photographer Algerina Perna critiques, "The short depth of field works so well in this photo, making the leaf stand out from the complementary colors in the background. The backlight catches the edge of the fence and also illuminates the back of the leaf just enough to prevent it from looking flat. Rather than dismissing the common and perhaps disorganized look of a leaf caught in a fence, Ciubotariu saw the beauty of fence, leaf and light, and captured them all in her photo."
