Little too bright for my eyes (sunlight) kinda washed out.

Might be a personal thing. I was tramping along in this rain forest, with some personal doubts and worries. The canopy was high above, and it was dark. Then, unexpectedly, this tiny patch of sunlight was on the foliage in front of me. That's exactly how it looked to me, with my eyes adapted to the dark.

It seemed like an answer of sorts. No one seems to like it much, but it has a very strong effect on me. The dazzling light on the leaves, with that weird green/fluorescence in the backlighting, and the deeper greens just outside the circle were, and are, very striking to me.

i understand what you are talking about. i know when i've seen the light coming through the forest it can seem like a magic moment. i think if you had backed up a bit and had more of the dark trees/foliage around it this would be a more effective picture. it is a little bright but also i feel a little too close up....it's a nice idea that you were trying to convey, i hope you'll try to get that magic moment again.

I agree with above posts. I think you lose effectivness when you have no detail left in the leaves due to the overexopsed area. Have you ever used the Histogram function of your digicam or Editor? It will tell you alot about what is going on in your photo.

You might have tried to capture more of the area, or the beam of light itself. there is an image in the critique area now with the beam effect going on in the forest, although that has its own issues. Still though, if you enjoy this photo, thats all that matters. Everyone can monday morning quaterback........


BTW Hey Julies: Pearl river here!

That's pretty much all there is on the overexposed leaves. Completely blown out. The reason I like it, is that I get that same impression of dazzling light with a bright green halo that hit me the first time I saw it.

As I said, it's personal experience I'm reliving when I see that shot.

No one else seems to like it but me.
