As I wandered through my woodland garden I noticed that the opening heads of some of our ferns looked like little people. I had hoped to capture a whole “family” but I couldn’t get them all in focus, so I decided to give Fern Man his very own profile portrait!
Nikon D700 and Nikon 105mm f/2.8 micro lens.

I used Topaz Adjust and Nik Viveza for to add clarity and contrast, plus a touch of Nik Color Efex Pro 4 Darken/Lighten Center to bring out his “profile”. I finished with Aquarius from Flypaper Textures and Tableaux Pastoral from French Kiss Textures.
