I love your serie of pictures with almost black BG Janice! This one is no exception. Very detailed, sharp, with good POV. Composition is delicate - looks like Japanese paintings. Good work!
Perfect photo Janice!
Sharpness,details,dark BG and composition are excellent.TFS...:-)
Nice composition Janice. Good sharpness. The leaves have picked up ythe flash and the shine is delightful. The varigated colour to the leaves is very attractive. Good work. Thanks
Personal assessment of the photo: excellent. Very attractive indeed!
Strong visual impact.
Aptness of the photo for the site: excellent.
Personal assessment of the note: complete.
Thank you Janice.
Rah-mah-rah-mah. Now, say it quickly… ;-)
Hi Janice. Have you seen how many hybrids there are of this plant in nurseries now?Some of them have very small leaves and are dark red or purple or multicoloured.
If you want an excellent ID book for natives the one by Yvonne Cave and Valda Paddison 'The Gardener's Encyclopaedia of New Zealand Native Plants'is very good.
Another is 'Nature Guide to the New Zealand Forest' by John Dawson and Rob Lucas.
I have them both and use them a lot.

It really has beautiful leaves, with strange shape and different colours. The image is great, it seems that you used flash, which got nice light and reflections, but again I must put your atention in the DOF. Dont be lazy :D, there are very small & light tripods that will improve this kind of shots very much. It worths the effort!

Very interesting plant, the dark background highlights the leaves very well. The color and shiny leaves reminds me of our Poisen Oak plant. Thanks for sharing this bumpy leaf plant with the "cool" name!
