Well, I think this is an example of how my software skills outweigh my photographic skills

If you cannot find a better viewpoint/lens combination and if fill in flash doesn't help try bracketing and using a HDR program to blend the images (I use photomatix pro). Although HDR can look unreal if not surreal, it can be used subtly to solve this sort of problem. My guess is that ND grads won't help too much in a wood as there isn't really a horizon as such.

Best wishes, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.
