Screwpine (Pandanus sp.) - 2, Palmarium, Madagascar Possibly another screwpine found in Palmarium. Note that this is a large plant/shrub, this one probably about 6m tall. <br />

Note on the &quot;making of&quot;: I used HDR tone mapping for this scene. In a jungle scene like this, you end up with the typical cloudy white sky combined with a dark forest floor, which is too much for a camera sensor to correctly expose for. You can&#039;t fix this during post processing by selectively adjusting exposure using a paint brush as the scene is way too complex for that. I rarely use HDR, but this is an example where I find it a great solution. Africa,Madagascar,Madagascar 2019,Palmarium reserve,World Click/tap to enlarge Promoted
