Great macro. Very nice details and colors. Black back ground helps to show plant properly. Greetings. Mustafa

Great shot the black background works well to show off your subject.
I love the ever increasing patterns found in unfurling ferns. You have captured these well.

I'm another fan of coiled ferns! This has good colour, texture and the central composition works well in a square.

Very good image to illustrate the "fractal" way the leaves grow

Very nice picture and a very informative note. I like what you did with the background. Well done.
it's a nice compositon.
However it's a little disappointing that you appear to have cut it out and placed it on this background, which really detracts from the natural beauty of this.
I think your subject is beautiful and I'm sorry to be negative especially when you have been supportive to me.

AHA! There it is!!! That spiral that they talk about on the Golden Ratio pages! I've been looking for it in various compositions and there it is! GREAT!
Quite a fascinating fiddlehead you got here Maynee. It looks to me here though like you did some sort of black fill paint for the background. A bit more feathering of the edges would have made it look more realistic.
Often times I'll carry a piece of black cloth which I can drape behind my subject so that everything in the BG is already black.

Manyee, these dark BGs do work great, don't they?
Excellent contrast, composition and saturation.
The image has an artistic touch, and that's great.

I have to agree with you that those plants are so fascinating. I always loved them too. This is an excellent macro with nice details and I like the choice of this black BG that makes it look like a portrait :) Your notes are much interesting. Thanks,
