Outstanding textures, tones, clarity, lighting, details and composition here, Paula!! Wonderful title for your image, too!! :o) #1185245

Martha R. Mazon level-classic 9/27/2009 8:48:13 AM

Terrific composition, Paula! Is this two blended images? I'm wondering how you achieved sharpness in the foreground and the background but not in the middle area. The results are wonderful. #7987812

Thank you Carolyn and Martha.

It's only one image of different layers of aging basal or sterile fronds (leaves) on a staghorn fern. both the upper section and lower section were at the exact same level, so when I focussed on the upper leaf, the lower was also within my range of focus. I used unsharpen mask to give it a cripser appearance.

I have two extremely large plants hanging in my yard. I live in Florida and they require no special care. They are HUGE. everyone who visits remarks on their size and we do nothing to them! #7987868
