Woodland Wandering


Link Posted 26/09/2016 - 16:09
Autumn's definitely in the air in Herefordshire, so I went to the Arboretum at Queenswood for a play with the camera. All taken with my K5, the wide ones with Sigma 10-20, anything close up with the DA* 50-135

Have had some more goes at ICM, which I currently find very hit and miss, as well as taking a few more conventional shots. All C&C welcome.

The last one for me! Framing the edges in woods is always difficult, but your solution here with the large trunk up close adds a feeling of depth. The exposure balancing is good with a wide dynamic range. Looks like a great days photography in a beautiful spot!

As above , a great days shooting, indeed.
1,3 and 9 for me and in that order, lovely tones too.
I know what i like, If not always why.

The general tone of the average woodland shot is just that but these ICMs present a totally different aspect of them. I like them.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

I quite like the toned images 3,4,5. Taking shadow patterns of leaves on tree trunks is something I try to do (not often succeeding!)
