I have been trying to make a composition with this fern...What do you think?

I love these ferns and am glad to see a photo of one. I think this composition works pretty well. I like the circular flow, which is typical of Maindenhair ferns. With the black BG, I'm wanting inclusion of more of the fern, but I can see problems that would present with other fronts intruding. With this crop, I might want less of a stark BG. Hope to see more.

I think it's very graphic and bold and love the circular feel to it. I really like the intense greens here - did you do anything special to bring those out?

Hi Bob,
Well...I think you were close on the comp.....perhaps having the circle more in the ROT position....but I do realize that will only potentially introduce other unwanted elements.....so I think you did an excellent job overall! Nice graphic look to this!

Hey Bob, this has a really nice feel. Like the comp, details, light. Well done.
