    i've gotten no good input on this shot. it's been over exposed, under exposed, white balance is off, etc etc.

    i thought it turned out okay? comments?

    Exposure: I think it is pretty spot on. The only blown out portion of the picture is the sky, which is expected, and is rather unavoidable unless you have a GND filter or you took two pictures and edited them together.

    White Balance: Nothing wrong on my monitor

    Okay, now for what I thought when I first saw the picture. Excellent oppurtunity, and great eye for spotting the difference in colours and contrast between the green moss on the 'floor' compared to the 'scraggly' trees. The only problem I have is.. there is not a single focal point. What may help next time is to try a similar shot from a different angle, such as including only one or two trees framing something (?). Or from more of a ground perspective looking up the tree trunk.

    It is a fine photo :) :thumbup:

    thanks for your input. i agree with you that it needs more of a focal point, i just tried to get the colours, they were so rich

    In the left corner up, the sky is over exposed. Theres a trick to get a perfect picture:
    -Take one photo over exposed and another under exposed, then in the PS join the 2 together ;)

    Another way, focus the sky to get it with the right exposere, then the trees will be dark, but you can recover the light in the dark :D

    hehehe sorry about my english

    Unfortunately, all I can see is a red x.
