i'm not completely content with the composition on this one, however i was somewhat limited with how i could shoot it as i had a fixed lens and there was another branch casting a shadow over the plant. this meant that the furthest away i could stand was at arms length so that i could still reach the branch to push it out of shot. i then had to focus and click the shutter with the other hand... which was fairly fiddly. it would have been pretty useful to have an extra arm, which is something i think about whenever i'm changing my lens and i end up juggling a camera, old lens, lens cap and new lens with my two hands. i think the most awkward time i tried doing this was standing at the look out point near angel falls when the rain was lashing down. i didn't want to get the camera any wetter than i knew i would when i started taking pictures, but i also really wanted to use my wide-angle lens to try and fit as much of the 1000m drop as possible. this led to me fumbling blind under my poncho, sweat and raindrops dripping down my face, growing more and more frustrated with each passing minute. that performance drew more than a few confused glances from the other onlookers let me tell you...
