A fine capture of the thorny stems of Rotan, one of the natural products of the rain forest that is useful to man! The sharpess, POV against an OOF natural BG, composition and lighting are superb!
It is called 'rotting' in Swedish and furniture made from it is popular here.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

excellent presentation of the rain forest plants, fine POV and
appropriate panorama style framing, fine focus sharpness and
details, i love the way the background is blurred, for me rain
forest equal to the same colour tones of your background, TFS

The beauty of TrekNature once again comes to the fore. I have just learned something
interesting and new from your fascinating notes. Thanks MF.
I am sure you did not post this image because you figured it had National Geographic
written all over it, but none the less it is a good image and it perfectly succeeded in its
purpose, namely to inform, to educate, to warn, and to make aware. Still I like the shot
as you didn't just point and shoot the subject. You obviously thought a bit about it and
arranged a lovely composition with the main stem positioned upright and the other three
thin ones running at an angle through the frame. You also successfully illustrated the
serious thorns and highlighting the potential danger to the unwary wanderer or trekker.
Well done and TFS.

Hi and gOod Morning MF Foozi,
Nice play on the light and shadows, the sharpness looks top notch. A very fresh and clean looking image, the white frame seems to have been a good choice. Great job MF!
Have a nice WE!

Very interesting posting with a good visula presentation, like always. I didn't know about Rattan plants. It's true they don't look very friendly !
I like your horizontal framing a lot.
Thanks and kind regards
