I'm not sure what kind of plant this is, obviously. If anyone knows, please leave me a comment.

This was one of those "throw-away" shots I took last summer while hiking around in southern, Illinois.

Nothing complicated as far as presentation goes. I went with black and white because I wanted to really play with the contrast. The original shot was just various shades of green and not that interesting, IMO. The curves and hanging leaves are really what caught my eye and I wanted to highlight those aspects.
