Janice! Great picture of young fern. Looks like Rangitoto is fern's paradise :-) I like composition very much but I thin your sony went mad with colours balance - check my workshop!

I'm quite surprised at the variety of vegetation on such a young volcano, and that temperature blows me away!
In some ways,Rangitoto and Pirongia seem opposites.On Pirongia,all the tallest trees are towards the lower slopes, and they get smaller as the altitude increases. Gullies are generally more densly clad than ridges, though there are many exceptions.Pirongia still has very thick bush around the summit.
I love the thick mountain five fingers, and Kie kie.
There she is again; the best plantphotographer on TN. :) Well done Janice. I always LOVE your plant-pics, they are arty. This is a very nice composition; in fact it's perfect with the three leafs pointing to a corner each. The green of the fern contrasts very well with the soil. TFS!

Great shot Janice, good composition, colours and clarity.
Nice note also.
I agree that the colors in the areas behind the leaves are "off" - the workshop fixes this well, I thought - still a very compelling shot. I visited Rangitoto many years ago, and appreciate your note - the vegetation, as I recall, was very lush, and everything was very damp, probably since it is isolated out in the bay.

Belle composition avec des jolies contrastes. Félicitations et bonne journée.
A nice messy Bg ful of colour, and this works well to compliment the young fern fonds - your com,po is very doog, as is the exposure. Well done, Now, go do those levels - If someone had told me how to do it 2 years ago, then I would be able to make my own pic by now instead of shooting them - lol.
