The Silver Fern
Silver fern as always beautifull :-) I like shrpness and composition of your photo. Silver leaf looks excellent on green BG. Good frame and high quality.
I'll try to take few photos today or around weekend - weather is still brilliant!

Striking picture with excellent graphical character. A beautiful composition and wonderful contrast between upper- and underside. An eyecatcher with fine colours

Color and composition are too good. Details and DOF are excellent.Most of all,now I understand the emotions behind the silver fern. Though I've noticed silver fern on the black caps I was unaware of the significance and the history behind.
Thanks a lot for sharing with excellent image of silver fern.

Très belle composition, très détaillée, dans laquelle l'opposition entre les deux couleurs est remarquable ainsi que le POV qui permet d'apprécier les textures de ces mplantes.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Nice and sharp with good contrast. Really shows the difference between the two sides. I see you are still supporting the "All-Black" background.

this image is a first place winner in any photo shoot in its catagory. There is a minimal part to it and yet a complex part...almost irony in the use of a word which might otherwise be self canceling. This image tricks the mind...it looks real. And yet it also has an unreal quality to it. but again...I can tell you if this were judged in print format, it would have a ribbon sticking on it!

This is so beautiful - I love your composition and the silvery colour and the green against the dark background looks so beautiful. The light is just perfect and details very sharp. Well done!
TFS and regards, Ulla

Love the idea here :)
The inverted underside "Silver" of the fern just jumps out of the frame on the green topside of the plant..
And excellent comp with very nice details, color, and light.

Wow... this is a gorgeous image. I've never seen a fern like it. The Pacific Northwest of the USA is a lot like NZ and has very similar ferns, but nothing like this one.

This is beautiful natural design Janice. I like the contrast between pale and darker color and this judicious composition! Congrats on a very nice capture!
PS I have problem imagining that you can have winter down there... Here, summer has just beginning for real and will last for a month or two :)… There is a running gag in Quebec which tells that we have four seasons: winter, winter, winter and winter…

I can't help chosing another of your fern pictures to say hello to you. I like them so much, and you are so good at photographing them. I really love these patterns and colours and I'm looking forward to seeing more of them!
Together with your very interesting notes, this is a highly valuable posting!

Great picture and note, thanks Janice!
Great shot! The patterns, symmetry, all look beautiful. The white leaves seem to be somewhat overexposed, but may it cannot be done better than this with the present technology. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Janice great to have met you today in person ...little overwhelmed with this site but will find our way around...
Nice Silver fern shot, later
