Woodland photography is difficult!!

Trees are one of my favourite subjects, usually lone ones. However, I really struggle in woodland. I often just wander around and don't even get the gear out!!

I know of an old Beech and Oak woods, that I've visited numerous times, but it really is a chaotic tangled mess. I've deleted everything I've ever taken in there. This weekend though, on a misty morning, things were a little easier to see... I've got a long way to go, but at least I didn't delete this one!

Re: Woodland photography is difficult!!

Chris this is good and deserves to be seen

I hope you dont mind but I have a few suggestion for it. Crop along the tree on the right to remove the bright area at the edge of the frame. Warm it up a little. Lift the levels a bit and then increase the contrast. This needs to be subtle, I can post a suggestion if you wish.

Re: Woodland photography is difficult!!

Thanks Alf, I appreciate the suggestions. Actually I did try the right hand side crop, but opted against it, as to me it made it feel a tad squeezed. I may have cooled it down a little too, I tried both ways.
I shall have another play though, thanks.

Re: Woodland photography is difficult!!

I agree with you about the difficulty in getting good woodland shots. The slight mistiness (or even a little drizzle) does help to produce a 'depth' effect and I think you have made a very nice image.

I quite like it, something a bit sinister maybe?

Re: Woodland photography is difficult!!

This one's definitely a keeper but I know what you mean, sometimes it's hard to see the wood for the trees!
