I should take notes when shooting photographs at the Conservatory of Flowers.  By the time I decide to process and post a photograph, it can be days, weeks, or even years.  Without notes on the plants or flowers, I am left google image searching without much success.  So if anyone happens to know what plant these leaves below to, let me know.

Shooting Notes: This image has been sitting in the archives for close to 2 years.  Due to the low light in the Conservatory, I try to capture as much light as possible in order to use a faster shutter speed to minimize vibration and shake from these handheld shots.  For this reason, I am using the 35mm prime lens that can open up to f/1.8.  The drawback here is the inability to zoom in for detail shots.  So this final photograph has been cropped down to only the elements I want: leaf lines, leaf folds, and the shadows created by the leaf ridges and valleys.

EXIF data: Nikon D7000, center-weighted metering mode, ISO100, 35mm (prime lens), f/4.5, 1/400 sec
