[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ferns fronds are beautiful and very inspirational to the people in my country. The motifs are derived from it and the carving are done copying this art of nature.
this one is so pleasant to look at as it is symmetrical and simple.

A fern is any one of a group of about 12,000 species of plants.[3] Unlike mosses, they have xylem and phloem (making them vascular plants). They have stems, leaves, and roots like other vascular plants. Ferns do not have either seeds or flowers (they reproduce via spores).

Leaf: The green, photosynthetic part of the plant. In ferns, it is often referred to as a frond, but this is because of the historical division between people who study ferns and people who study seed plants, rather than because of differences in structure. New leaves typically expand by the unrolling of a tight spiral called a crozier or fiddlehead. This uncurling of the leaf is termed circinate vernation.

By far the largest group of ferns are the leptosporangiate ferns, but ferns as defined here (also called monilophytes) include horsetails, whisk ferns, marattioid ferns, and ophioglossoid ferns. The term pteridophyte also refers to ferns (and possibly other seedless vascular plants; see classification section below). A pteridologist is a specialist in the study of ferns and lycophytes.
Ferns are vascular plants differing from lycophytes by having true leaves (megaphylls). They differ from seed plants (gymnosperms and angiosperms) in their mode of reproduction—lacking flowers and seeds. Like all other vascular plants, they have a life cycle referred to as alternation of generations, characterized by a diploid sporophytic and a haploid gametophytic phase. Unlike the gymnosperms and angiosperms, the ferns' gametophyte is a free-living organism.

Dear Foozi!

I like the composition and the shape of this part of a fern very much. I looks like a handcraft work. The effect with the dark background is fine, too. From my point of view the effect of the flashlight (bright reflections) is a little bit too visible and could be attenuated in a postprocessing work.

Kind regards

Great shot! Simply and beautiful. Excellent composition. I like it very much.Best regards Siggi

Salam Foozi.
Talking about pov, this is simply amazing. I’m sure there are many people who have seen this plant and you have framed it in stunning fashion. Fine graphism with vivid details and the silenced background is making the image stands out in the frame.

Breathtaking composition of this truly strange for me plant, Foozi. A fine artistic shot with great contrast and beautiful colors indeed. I love it!

Great frame showing the symmetry of the frond nicely.
The dark BG with opposing light rays adds good interest too :)
