I was inspired by Paul Barson‘s work to process these photos in a slightly different way than I might have before viewing his work. He was featured on Leanne Cole Photography. His images are very dark, but I liked the way he used the light to isolate his subjects and direct the viewer’s eye. So I pushed these images a little darker than I would normally have thought to go. It only added one or two more steps to how I usually process my images but I like the results. I’m doubtful that this is now my new style but I may be more likely to take my images in this direction when I think it appropriate. Let me know if these images work for you or not.

The ferns almost look like beings talking to one another.
They do. Thanks Robert, I’m smiling now!
Gorgeous! The tones are beautiful!
Thank you very much Paul. I had already sorted these images and they were waiting in my archives to be processed. I must admit that processing is not my favourite task and so my style tends towards minimal. However, after viewing some of your images I was inspired to experiment. I am relieved and delighted that you like my photos.
Thank you Beth! For my work to be any kind of inspiration is the ultimate compliment for me and I’m glad you did experiment, they look fantastic 🙂
Wow, awesome series!
Thanks Mary, appreciate it. Never know when you try something new.
What wonderful photos!
Thanks busy lady, I pushed the envelope a little more than I normally would have but am pleased with the results.
Thanks Victor. I love it when a plan comes together. 🙂
Look great to me! I love the unfurled fronds of ferns 😀
Thanks Jude. They are favourites of mine too and are surprisingly hard to photograph. So low to the ground and usually lots of busy background. I had to work hard to isolate these guys. So I am relieved that they turned out so well. 🙂
These photos are beauties!
Thank you very much. As I said I was inspired and I’m so glad it worked out. 🙂
