While shooting fall color, I decided to take a detour and shoot the fading daylight filtering through the woods, in monochrome.

I too liked the effect! IMO, for that particular effect, you might even enhance it by castingsome light streaks assigning an opening as the source..

Thanks Bahadir! I'm not sure what effect would accomplish the effect you describe. Actually, the only effects I have applied to these images is to burn down the corners, usm and a very judicious eq of the gray scale. I'm a firm believer in the zone system and learning ways to apply it to the digital relm.

Yourpictures above,especially the first one,actually makes me appreciate your good taste! The forested slopesuggests methe pesence ofa heavenly opening awaiting there...almost there...Yet, a little emphasize ondiagonal sense of movement would add to the composition I think. Oh, not because it would look cute or sth, LoL : ) Thus I simply tried linking the opening above which is thelight source,to the sloping forest flooralready retaining the light and shade interplay thanks to youreffort. Hope you don't mind!

Cheers,

Bahadır

It's been delightful,Bob,for I haven't been to trekking for some while!First I used the Mystical Lighting simply to cast the stream of light and thenopened the output in Photo Shop for anextensive session of refinement using mainly the 'dodge' and 'burn' tools remindingmydays of painting : ) The whole thing took almost an hour, which I would hardly be patient enough for apicture of mine to post here:-)Anyway, glad to hear it worked for you my friend..
