Challenge: Free Study 2007-07 (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix A345
Location: woods behind my house
Date: Jul 19, 2007
Aperture: f4.7
ISO: 94
Shutter: 1/30 sec
Date Uploaded: Jul 20, 2007

This was taken around 7am after a heavy rain overnight; there was still a heavy mist in the air; I noticed these lovely rays of sun coming through the trees on the path and hitting the ground; unfortunately, I didn't have my slr, only my old p&s but the image is good for that camera...cropped, levels, curves, high pass filter,hue/saturation, cloned out a small branch, gothic glow added.

post challenge: thank you all for the comments and post challenge comments; this image has proven to me that it isn't the camera but the decisive moment you choose to take the image.

I cant wait to see what settings were used to get the sunlight though mist effect, I never seem to be able to catch it. The usual problem of taking a picture of airborne water.

Such a peaceful shot - at the same time, I'm expecting a monster to appear anytime now from behind some bushes. :) Great shot. 10

Very nice - love the play of light on this. Only minor complaint from me is the upper left looks artifically gray. Could have titled this 'early morning magic'. :) Wonderfully seen and captured. Good luck in the challenge.

Beautiful, but just screams for a subject down there in that spot light. Needs a deer, garden gnome, something. : )

A beautiful shot. Just the right degree of softness and gently diffused light. The kind of image you dream of achieving. I hope you hang a print of this on your wall.
