Good afternoon, Trudy!
The different green tones of those huge leaves are fantastic. I like its freshness and clarity very much, you did a really great job. Excellent brightness and sharpness, simple, but very effective composition. Great shot! TFS.

I really like the different textures captured in this massive leaf. It's nice to see some green plants since in my neck of the woods everything is nasty yellow. Anyway the shot is nicely composed and looks great.
Beautiful green presentation . . fine detail of the leave's texture . .
I did a quick edit, just crop the image, removing the left disturbing yellow leaves . . Hope you don't mind . . It's my personal preference to focus on the main object . .

This is superb depth of field with f/3.6 aperture!
Excellent sharpness and clarity, amazing leaves..TFS
We had some Hosta growing in our garden many years ago - but after a few summers they never appeared again.
With all that snow, do you leave them in the garden over winter?
They look so healthy here

Hi Trudy..nice shot..great details and tones..nice work.
a beautiful visual of foliage,
the shades of green are fabulous!
An interesting composition with a beautiful color palette!
The small flower contrasts well with the bottom, with clear and delicate details ...
Nice sharp shot Trudy, great saturation too.. Really stands out of the photo..
Sory to hear it's still snowing.. We're well into spring here with 35'C today!! Ouch in preparation for summer's furnace..

Amazingly sharp for f/3.6 Trudy, everything is so neat , do not despair this is what you 'll be admiring soon and it's a promise , the change of season is beginning to show over here . This Hosta plant is so full of chlorophyll, isn't that what makes the leaves so green ? Anyway a lovely green at that !You are so right about planting different coloured varieties for a more visual impact, that makes so much sense! A good one,

Trudy, snow is mother nature's watering device, except when it covers 4-5 meters and kills everything in it's path. I'm sure you know all that from your experience in horticulture. Yet you have maintained a beautiful and rich garden which looks to replenish beautiful in future weeks to come. Wonderful photograph!
