Beautifully done! Especially love the compositon and the two greens.
Where did you take this photo? Outdoors, indoors? How did you get the frond to be so flat. Great job. #6150797

Thanks so much Anita!! It was taken outside, early morning light. This fern(don't know what kind) is very straight just the top curves a little.So I was able to get my camera on the same plane as the fern.That's why it looks flat. The green bkgd is grass.

Thank you Beth! #6158231

Thanks for responding to my question. I asked because I have not been successful with ferns. Excellent photo. #6162043
