A client of mine starts a children's therapy practise. She uses the name Ponga, because she really likes the meaning of it. I do the pictures for her folder and website. but living in het Netherlands it will be hard to make such a beautiful picture as you did of a ponga.
My question is now....can we use this picture if we put your name as acknowoledgement?

My e-mailaddress is imkemar@yahoo.com Thank you!

Ferns are truly an amazing plant. Every stage of their growth is incredible. Being in Canada our ferns are just now appearing.

One of my favourites from the challenge - did not have time to leave a note when I voted. Lovely green colour - just what I imagine NZ to be (I was brought up in a more golden, arid Australia; entirely different colours).

Really interesting form and shapes. I would have like to see a little less of the fern at right. This might be nice as a square composition.

With advanced editing rules, you should have made this shot alot better. Not sure why you didn't blur or darken the background more, it really distracts from the very nice foreground image.

Wow crazy detail and interesting plant. Wish so many entrys this go around were not Plant and Spring related got repetitive and felt unoriginal but this is my favorite of all the plant shots.

bright leaf at right and busy backgrounf distract from an otherwise good macro
  Photographer found comment helpful.
04/19/2006 01:29:05 AM
Excellent! Although my eye is directed more to the right...Perhaps if that portion were out of the depth of field range, then more focus could be placed on the subject. Very nice though.
