In reply to:

RuthC: This is a wonderfully delicate picture, photoman555, and it has given you second place as well in this Fern Fronds challenge. I really like the whimsy of the whole photo; everything is in sharp detail, and the graceful curves of the three branches offer us a beautiful, harmonious image to appreciate.
RuthC :-)

Thanks again Ruth..... What a surprise... a 1, 2 finish, that's a first for me...
Very pleased to do so well with the number of high caliber entries in your challenges Ruth.

RuthC: Congratulations, photoman555, on your win in the 'Fern Fronds' challenge with this excellent capture of an extremely hairy fern frond, just before it unfurls itself and becomes a long, graceful fern leaf. I know how difficult it is to keep all of the subject in focus, from the neat curls hidden in the frond, to the hirsute outer spiral. Great contrasting colours and textures make this a well-deserved winner.
RuthC :-)

Thank you Ruth, it was a bit of a challenge to keep the frond as sharp as possible, and still blur the background. I tried several shots at different apertures, but this shot stuck the right balance for me.

I'm going great Bren, just got back from another NZ trip. Mostly on the North Island. Gave you a call when I was on the South Island 3 months ago, but couldn't get onto you. Anyway have a great Christmas, and all the best for the new year to you and your family.
