loved the way the light came through the trees in this forest... saplings, mature trees, and old stumps all dappled with sunlight and shadows...

very cool!

i like the mix of stumps, youngin's and nice old trees the sun burns out the areas it hits...but i don't think it detracts as muchhereas it usually does

i know the sunlight burns out a bit, but this was actually taken in January, and the area i was standing in was in deep shadow, so the sunlight was really bright by comparison... unfortunately, i couldn't tone down just the sunlit spots...

yeah true...

sunny days are REALLY tough to expose when in forests...because the trees only let in blotches..

but like i said, it doesn't detract here like it usually does

Sometimes it helps in situations like this to underexpose. Unfortunately, it doesn't always work, and I don't know that it would have here. On really glaringly sunny days, I've taken to using both polarizing and neutral density filters on my lens. More of the pictures turn out, but still not all of them. High, strong sun is tough.
