Taken during a wedding in a castle on the Isle of Rum... fantastic. Unfortunately, the castle was very dark, and so the camera was inadvertantly left on ISO3200 for this shot. It's actually very hard to see the noise on the full-res image so thanks Minolta for the low noise levels! This was a quick snapshot as I didn't have time for any
walks through these woods during the wedding, and there was non-stop rain the rest of the time. Bluebells will cover the floor of the woods in about a month's time and it's a shame I won't be around to capture it. Editing consisted of curves, USM and gaussian blur only. No NeatImage!
Lens used was my new Tokina 24-200, here used at 60mm. Very handy lens.

i like this shot a lot. the green and brown contrasts are really nice. managing to make the color brown appealing is quite a feat on its own, but you went ahead and turned out some really nice greens and an overall well composed photo...and in accordance with everyone else who commented...great colors!

I didn't get a chance to leave you a comment, but I love the green atmosphere of this shot! It should have done better!

Really nice color and composition, but just a tad bit too much blur for my taste. Good work.

Beautiful colors, seems like it's tilting a bit though.

Now this is wonderfully done - deceptively simple, and hard to do. Excellent detail, clever and well seen composition, and a great mood. Marvellous photograph.

i really like this, but wish it wasn't so tilted. the colors are splendid. i wonder, though, if you could have chose a different perspective, one where the road could be seen wandering a bit more diagonally through the image rather than almost splitting it down the middle? either way, you have a nice image. good luck!

This is one of my favorite pictures of this challenge. Love the green saturation, the crispy look, and the little path that takes you by the hand through the picture. Thanks for sharing it with us :)

You've captured what few are able to... an interesting, well composed forest shot. Great greens, soft focus gives it a dreamlike quality, path down the center provices a focal point. Well done

Looks like we've both been Island hopping this last month...only you've got some trees and decent weather! Very lush and verdant yet eerie all the same. The path leads the eye although the joining path on the left distracts a little. Pinch of Neatimage?-it adds to the atmosphere well. Excellent.
