Medium Format Photography: Ferns

Testing out my 1950's Zeiss Ikon camera.  I guessed the settings (the camera is fully manual with no light meter) and ended up with an exposure which is slightly lacking in shadow detail, but does give the plants an almost 3D look. This camera also poses the challenge of composing in the 6x6 square format, which will be something I need to get used to after having composed entirely in wider formats since I took up photography over a year ago now.
