What a cute little baby! Nice transition.

very pretty, i'd prefer a greater depth of field to catch the whole leaf on the left and a re-framing to either pull that leaf away from the edge of push a bit more than half of it out of the picture. i wanted to do something silimar for the curves challenge!

GREAT photo!!

This looks like something on a sci-fi movie. It is downright cool.
04/26/2002 08:45:00 PM
very pretty. i'd go in a little bit closer on the budding part. also, a good composition rule is to not put something right in the center but in either the top or bottom third.
04/26/2002 05:11:00 PM
Excellent choice and nice compositon.
04/26/2002 01:51:00 PM
I like that the detail is well-delineated without over-sharpening.
04/25/2002 05:07:00 PM
Lovely detail, a fine image.
04/25/2002 11:09:00 AM
Nice shot, I can almost feel the texture of the plant from here
04/24/2002 05:41:00 PM
I really like this picture because it's something I've never seen before -- great texture in this image. Good depth, too.
04/24/2002 01:42:00 PM
Wow, looks almost alien!
04/24/2002 10:06:00 AM
what if you cropped the print to be even more horizontal, almost panorama dimensions. Lovely, simply lovely
04/24/2002 12:05:00 AM
I really like this. I wonder how many have seen a fern "born", and in such focus, too. Nice!
04/23/2002 11:22:00 PM
The foreground leaf could have been a bit sharper, very original subject.
04/23/2002 05:39:00 PM
Nice DOF.
04/23/2002 01:04:00 PM
I think this is really great and don't have any suggestions -- my gut wants to say that the composition is missing something, but I honestly couldn't say what it was
04/23/2002 12:51:00 PM
Nicely captured. You do get a sense of uncoiling here. A nice transition.
04/23/2002 11:51:00 AM
Wonderfull, clear picture and very well focused on the main subject.
04/23/2002 09:54:00 AM
lovely shot, can almost see it uncurling
04/23/2002 06:21:00 AM
This is a well spotted opportunity. Like the fern in the foreground that shows clearly what it is we're looking at. Shame not to have had blue sky, but can't blame you for the weather!!
04/23/2002 05:48:00 AM
Very nice interpretation. Been living in the city for 5 years. I sure misse these fiddleheads.
04/22/2002 11:55:00 PM
This is a very nice shot. I think the fern on the left distracts a bit from the image.
04/22/2002 09:20:00 PM
I love it. Great job.
04/22/2002 08:55:00 PM
Excellent composition here! Great concept for a transition!
04/22/2002 08:39:00 PM
that's cool, it looks like alien invaders took over some crazy tropical plant, nice job...i wish the fern frond along the left side was totally in focus though
04/22/2002 07:34:00 PM
beautiful composition, bright colors. Great shot!
04/22/2002 04:29:00 PM
Nice fiddlerhead.
04/22/2002 04:27:00 PM
Excellent depth! Good shot
04/22/2002 02:29:00 PM
Very nice work.
04/22/2002 12:45:00 PM
U mean birth of a fern limb?
04/22/2002 12:30:00 PM
wow.. how cool. I love this.
04/22/2002 10:14:00 AM
nice use of depth of field - needs better light to make this stronger
04/22/2002 08:20:00 AM
insects make me squirm hehe, this is pretty good. i like it
04/22/2002 07:29:00 AM

04/23/2002 03:22:00 PM
