    Where I live, there are no woods as grand or famous as the Muir Woods that Randog photographed the other day, but there are a couple of woods, and sometimes I go out there for some photos.

    I am not happy with these at all.
    Actually, I am only posting them in some sort of communication with Randog and his wood-photos. Lighting was extreme, a very white, milky, hazy sun, strong enough to cast deep shadows... and my camera THEN shows that it is just a compact digital one with problems... Bear with me - not all photos can be winners!

    The crossroads and the two paths were smack against the sun :(

    This was the view I had when I turned round - with the sun the sky was blue, but I so want that twig at the top out of the picture and can't get it out, for cropping is my only means, and that would kill the picture... :(

    A little further into one of the two paths I came across this (which usually brings my camera very much to its own bounderies):

    Just to show you that I find woods a difficult motif, challenging, with not always any good results...

    Lafoto, I think # 3 and #5 are wonderful shots. I really like number 5 - nice perspective. Thank-you Lafoto your communication is getting through to me and it's much appreciated. :D

    Thank you all, folks.
    Me, I am not happy with the results, too many hot spots on the ground...
    But I can always go and reshoot, there are plenty of woods round here.
    Maybe I should try to convert the first ones into black and white? Maybe? Do you think that could help? I should just go and "play" with them a little..... see if I might begin to like them a bit better?
