Backlit Fern Frond



While on our Blogger Family Photoshoot I noticed Amy shooting some ferns whose fronds had begun to change colors. After she finished I took my turn shooting and selected this single backlit frond.


I wonder if she captured a better image than I

So simple! My shots turned out to be too cluttered, too much "stuff" in them. I have three or four shots of that same frond, but there's all sorts of other woodland items in the way. I love that the background in yours is thrown out of focus. This is perfect!

I agree with Ash about the background. Well done and NIce detail.

Backgrounds sometimes work and sometimes don't. This one is really nice without the details of the background.

Thanks so much for your compliment on my posting the other day. Its so appreciated, especially coming from an accomplished photographer like yourself.

I was also reminded of lacework by this superb picture. It is made all the better for the darkness of the back ground.
