Wollemia nobilis - The TN Spirit
A nice shot of this (living fossil) plant. Your use of flash allows us to view the leaves unique features in fine detail. The leaves actually remind me of fern fronds, as they don't have the usual leaf appearance.
I like the framing and color although the exposure looks just a tad light on the left side of the leaf, probably due to the angle of light from your flash.
I always find it interesting when they find plants or animals living today which had always been thought to be extinct. This is an example of such a find from 1994. Love your WS image as it shows the entire tree. TFS.
Ps. I tried a WS, to see if I could reduce the exposure a little. Not sure if it actually helps or hinders the overall appearance.

Une très belle lumière, bien maitrisée, et une excellente profondeur de champ.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Excellent close-up of a part of this plant but after viewing the WS
photo with the whole plant I like much more the one in the WS
because of the POV, the appropriate vertical framing and also
the framing being tight, with great contrast of the color tones, TFS
