Ferns – A Study of Pattern, Shape and Shadow

Over the last several months I’ve found myself drawn to ferns as photographic subjects. They’re quite plentiful in the forests of eastern North Carolina. While lacking rich, saturated colors like flowers and butterflies, the patterns formed by them can be quite interesting. The example below is obviously quite contrived. I placed a leaf from a smaller, lighter colored green on top of a larger one, and in an opposing direction to create interest and isolation. I think it works, do you?

Ferns present an interesting study in pattern, shape and shadow.
