palm frond detail

By notabimbo
The new fronds on my sago palm just emerged, and on their first day or two unfurled, they have these lovely curls on their edges.

I've taken dozens of shots of these from every imaginable angle.....this one I like in B&W.

This is a cracking shot Amy - I really like the curly shape of the fronds and the curve of the leaves - the restricted DOF workd well and This works well in B&W emphasising the shape and form.

Good dof to capture a strong natural pattern, with black and white a good choice for emphasis. Well done Amy.

Well Done! My grandfather was a violin expert and for some reason this reminds me of him. Great Shot.

Gosh Amy - this is superb. I seem to miss so many good shots lately. Thanks for your comment on my rose - I see what you mean about liking b&w plant macros - this one is gorgeous.

Welcome back Amy, yes I know you return few days back but my computer is underattack by viruses and those unseen creeps not letting me enough time to view anything at all. Gonna fix it up soon.

Well I admit to say I inspire your bw treatment, the aftertoning effect you produce are just so wonderful. Perhaps there will be others in EPZ but havn't get any chance to find them so my inspiration of BW treatment is you and I try to work on it, didn't upload any of that but Smile Thanks

This Image, I like that closeup and wondering what other angles you shot of this. Very clear details. Was thinking to make some Your kinda bw touch but then I thought to do more practice before posting one Smile

Thank you all so much for your kind comments. I'm especially flattered to hear that I have inspired you to try something new, Amark. I can't wait to take a look at the work you've done while I've been AWOL. Smile
