Nasereddin Shah Qajar, around 150 years ago, the owner was a special palace inside Shahrestanak. The palace is now known Shahrestanak palace.
When I walked in the Shahrestanak gardens, I heard was the sound of leaves. I decided to take a photo of them. The composition was a little difficult. Because everything was like each other. I decided green grass at the bottom of the composition. I think with this method I get a better composition.
For this photo, I used my Hasselblad 500 C/M camera and Carl Zeiss Sonnar 180/f4 CF lens. The lens was set at a near distance, and the image recorded with aperture 16 and shutter speed 1/15 seconds on Fuji Velvia 50 120 roll film.
