Thread: The Forest Floor

  1. #1

    The Forest Floor

    I am very fond of paintings and photos of the forest floor.


    Since there was not much foliage colour yet during my trip to New England this Fall, I took a number of photos of the forest floor.

    Beautiful, saturated colors. The diffused light and drops of moisture really adds a lot to the feeling of the environment. Well seen and captured. My only nitpick are the two, out of focus, yellow-green leaves in the bottom foreground. It's so easy to overlook these when shooting a subject like this.... I'm often guilty of it myself. I might attempt to remove them in post processing. A pretty cool (and wet) shot.

    Thanks for the reply, Paul and the kudos.


    The golden “drops of moisture” are actually secretions by the fungus. I was focusing on it and not on the leaves. I did not have my macro lens with me, so I did the best I could with the 18-200 and PSP. I wanted the elements around the fungus/stump to be blurred.
