Profound Color Expression

The yellow color is reminiscent of the daylight Kodachrome 25. It is a technicolor color that is memorable somewhere. I picked up the colors on the big ginkgo tree with Macro Nikkor and made a picture. I set the aperture scale to 1. SCALE = 1, that is, F6.3 with the aperture open. All photos below were taken at F6.3 with full aperture. F6.3 with the maximum aperture seems to be the sharpest.
