i was driving around after work today and saw some water along the road.

i followed it to a storm drain and found this.

i then decided to add it to my funky forest series.

too much?

i will post the others in a seperate thread to avoid confusion (and for those of you

who don't like the "ethereal")

I like it Scot - definite wall poster potential.

Compisition wise, I think this shot works well. Where the problem is for me is the greens, the colour is too un-natural, almost like the plastic plants you buy for fish tanks. If you use the selective colour tool and darken the yellows and decrease yellow and green, you will have a far more pleasing shot.

I've got nothing against the glow or the saturation, just the colour is off.

G'day,

nice shot Scott. Although again as is my issue with the other circle pic, the brightness on the right distracts a little from the rest of the shot. And I do like the "ethereal" look you have to it as well, however that bright spot takes away some of the ambience of that type of shot in this pic.

Sorry if I am being overly picky, otherwise I like the shot alot. Always wanted to do running water shots.

Ollie

That's simply a striking work, Scot.
On the other hand, I must say, I certainly agree with John's suggestion about the greens.

thanks for the comments, guy's!

john, thank you for the tip.

i shot this in a rather high light situation, so the technique was a bit tricky, but will

take the color tool tip to heart.

same excuse to you ollie.

the shooting atmosphere was very bright and the foliage on the right was blown on
most shots.

will find the location tomorrow and get better conditions (supposed to be partly

cloudy ).

thanks again, for the help.

I can sympathise with you, these situations can be an exposure nightmare. Sounds like you will get some good shots tommorow.
