Shooting on film at ISO 100 in this rather dark greenhouse wasn't easy.

This is delicious! Looks like from Willy Wonka - chocolate leaves.

As if cast in bronze . . . if we could all have achieved results like this from film (every time), we might not have arrived at digital.

@Ronnie 2¢: Many thanks for that! But I was adding some digital processing here, too, so progress wasn't completely in vain. :-)

Your results on film - magnificent !! the sculptural and cloth like look of these
leaves are astonishingly beautiful.

@Phil David Morris 2011: Thanks! Having the opportunity of tuning them with the usual software tools makes it a bit easier.

It may not have been easy, but you achieved great detail in this spikemoss.
