    Been trying to shoot in a local forest. I've been back three times and I think I'm getting there. The light needs to be just so. I did these early morning. Comments welcome, I need to get it right before all the bluebells appear!

    I agree, you got it right! Very nice.

    I really, really like the framing and the shadows in #2. For me, they could all use a tiny bit of contrast to darken up the shadows, but you know me...I like stuff dark :mrgreen: Very nice stuff!

    Nice lighting and shots. I find back lighting works best for these kind of shots.

    Indeed the lighting gives it a rather soft look, gotta try that sometime.

    Love the vividness, I know they are just trees, but I like how you composed this Mohain. Lovin #2 with the slight underexposure. Really cool cool shots !

    Thanks for the comments :mrgreen:

    Arch, I will try a B&W, thanks :)

    Woody, I know what you mean. I fought for ages with myself about the shadow contrast. It just didn't looked right with darker shadows. I did have a bit of trouble processing these shots.

    M @ k o, they are all underexposed a bit. This is the problem I have had. Too much and it's all mulchy, too little and the highlights and the fringing are a mare! I have to watch the histogram carefully! Another problem I have is that my camera doesn't handle underexposure well...

    Anyway, I burble... Thanks again :)

    Cheers,

    Mohain.
