Is that Hakone grass in the foreground amongst ferns? I thought it would be too dry in your part of the world for these forest plants. The fact that I am seeing these foreground plants speaks to the excellent capture of the scene. Nice shot...

Thank you both.

That was shot at the Arboretum and I know they experiment a lot out there and everything gets plenty of water if it can stand the heat so you could very well be right about the grass, but I'd have to check to confirm.

Thanks Bob. Another case of simply watching the histogram, exposing to the edge of overexposure on the tree trunk, ignoring where the shadow values were and adjusting everything in the raw converter.

The lens was zoomed to 17mm, which is about as wide as I like to go with the 14-150 since it's quite weak in the corners at 14-15mm. I really prefer not even going wider than 20mm and just using the 9-18 for the wide range, 75-300 for that range and filling in the rest with the 14-150. Works pretty well.
