What techniques/approaches do you use when photographing within forests. Any types, mainly interested in Australian forests as I won't be overseas any time soon but comments and suggestions from any others would be appreciated too.

Attached is the only shot I am sort of happy with.

Ways of processing are also of interest, as it can often make or break a shot.

Cheers.

If you shot this in RAW, try playing with the exposure slider and see how you like it with less light.

HDR could be a candidate for this photo. 5 different exposures +2,+1,0,-1,-2. Could look cool when altogether.

Always RAW :)
I couldn't decide if more or less light would improve it. Played with both but settled on the above.

Yeah, highlights are blown beyond recoverable with ACR. I've found even when I shoot a set of exposure for HDR I end up liking the image I can get with 1 exposure more. I am only using PS for HDR though; I believe others are meant to give better results...


Any general suggestions?

You should try making this a 3d image with the trees. I like the division of the sunlight the trees help to great.
