This a shot of one of the baby Japanese maples in my front yard. A few new leaves sprouted and I wanted to isolate one of them in a shot. I shot this with a very bright sky in the background, so I adjusted EV +1.3 after the shot was framed and did some minor post-processing reducing the exposure -0.32 (EV +1 would have been perfect), brought oranges forward and sent yellows backward.
