Taken on a walk along the river Ashburn. Of course I only noticed the debris on the fern when I came to process it. So I went back a couple of days later, and couldn't find the same fern, it was a bit too dark, and I fell in the stream, so I'm sticking with this one.

Thank you all, for the ribbon and kind comments.

My original (re-sized and sharpened) is here:

The only significant processing was a curves adjustment.

Simple and straight to the point. Very nice colour contrast between the leave and the background.

I look forward to reading about your post-processing steps. The colors here are surreal. Nice triangle too. A nine for you.

This is very simple but very nice lighting. Makes it look crisp and even edible. Can you eat ferns?
05/08/2008 12:57:41 AM
great exposure and nice depth of field

there's some odd bits on the leaves that are distracting
