This is a beautifully managed shot of a growing fern into a subtle composition including a pleasant bokeh.

The vertical frame works fine, and the greens are amazing.

Your frame is very appropriate and well designed to not disturb the image and give a 3D feeling, which is somehow spoiled by the signature unfortunately.

Good one!


Hello Catherine,

Exquisite. Nature gives such wonderful gifts.

Beautiful shot of this young fern, sharp detail, nice blurred BG, this fern looks like a crosier

Hi Catherine,

Wow, what a superb macro capture which clearly shows a beginning of the spring at its best!

Perfectly captured with great details. the POV and sharpness are very well done and colors are perfectly natural. Nice blurry BG helps the subject in giving a 3-D look to it. Very well seen!

best regards,

Que c'est beau Catherine ,les tonalités de vert sont si délicates et nuancées , la longiligne feuille qui descend le long de la tige est tout à fait attrape-l'oeil , le type de plante que l'on voit peu souvent sur ce site , aucune distraction de l'arrière-plan pour assurer au sujet tout la place qui lui revient , j'aime bien ton travail sur cette image , bravo mon ami,
Merci, Carol
