Poison Ivy by TEMPERATE-SAGE Poison Ivy by TEMPERATE-SAGE
We did this pixie shoot in the woods and I thought it would be a great one to do a little composite work on.  It is also fits well with the environment it is in.  Here is the northwest USA English Ivy is one of the most invasive plant species we have to deal with.  Many people plant it in their yards because it is pretty and perennial.  The problem is that birds eat the seeds which are mildly toxic and then end up spreading them all over in our natural thick rain forests.  The plants grow easily in the shade, feed parasitically off of the trees, eventually killing them.  It also chokes out our underbrush and essentially takes over large swathes of forest eventually killing everything.  

Luckily all the ivy in this shot is added in post.  Ivy truly is a beautiful poison where I live. =)

I can't even tell this is a composite, so I'd say you're pretty good at it already :)
