[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this shot on a tour trough the rainforest in Costa Rica. Not sure what plant it is, but even for the lack of vibrant colors I think this is a beauty.
We took the tour while we were on a cruise and had only one day in Costa Rica. I am planing go back to visit this contry and spend more time exploring the rainforest.

Hello Sky...
Very fine lines as seen through your camera here, your POV enhances the structural beauty of the plant...
Vibrant, fresh green... The colour of life indeed!

Hi Sky
A theme for a green scene. The most common colour in nature, except for the blue sky. Of course I am talking about the heavenly sky and not yourself on a Monday morning while doing the washing - or something like that (chuckle).
In its simplicity this is an excellent composition showing your creative eye (once again) for seeing the beauty in everyday scenery that sometimes tends to pass us by without noticing. The brown leaves of the new growth stands nicely in contrast to the rest of the foliage. The DOF is great and the exposure was handled just fine.
Very well done and TFS.

Sky, your note mentions you applied sharpness, but I'd try to add a little bit more of this, but it's just an opinion.

I like colors and composition.

Nice lighting.

his is a wonderful presentation, great colors and clarity!
Thanks Ana:)

Nice tropical plant Sky, nicely composed and very good exposure. Good sharpness too. Costa rica seems to be a wonderful place. Thanks.


Hello Sky,
A simple but very nice composition, showing this tropical plant well. You've shown the new growth nicely, with good color, exposure and detail.
Well done and Thank You!
