Uncurling Fern
Photographer: Sebastian Kennerknecht
Location: Tawau Hills Park, Sabah, Borneo, Malaysia
Story: 
After a bit of searching I finally found a suitable fern frond I wanted to photograph in Tawau Hills Park, in Malaysian Borneo to show off the amazing plant life of the lowland rainforest. The plant was beautiful, but the background was completely distracting. To simplify the image, I used a different large green leaf and placed it behind the fern. By using a slow shutter speed and moving the leaf in the background I was able to get the colors I desired without showing the actual detail in the leaf.
