Study of a lettuce leaf

I was thinking about the mini-theme “Very vegetable” of Google Plus Macro Monday challenge whole weekend. At first, I wanted to cut through pepper and show the seeds, but it did not look all that compelling. Then I thought of shoot-through slices, but lemon or orange would not do this time. I settled on a lettuce. It had the advantage that curvy leaves could be positioned on the flash itself, and with minimal holding them in place, could be photographed. Had some fun with the shot, and settled on this image as keeper.
