Unfolding Season

I have taken a shot (several actually) like this almost every spring. Compare to 4/15/2009 which are actually images taken on 5/19/2008. It does not matter. I find the emerging forms and the coiled potential irresistible.

Canon SX20IS at 28mm equivalent and Super-macro. The fiddlehead was actually  inside my lens hood. F2.8 @ 1/160th @ ISO 160. Programmed auto.

In Lightroom, Recovery for the background. Fill Light for the fern. Blackpoint just slightly right. Added Clarity and Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset. Cropped for composition.

    Very nice … but you know what I’ll say: these forms would look in B&W as well!
