Electric Slide by aFeinPhoto-com Electric Slide by aFeinPhoto-com
After living on Kauai for 4 years I can honestly say there are few things that compare to Oregon/PacNW green. On a recent family trip to visit a very very cute new niece! the bunch of us went out to see Mt Hood. Driving to and from there are old growth forests that my brother had picked out to go for a walk...well. Yay! While driving I was itching the entire time to get my camera on these greens!

Forests are the hardest thing for me, and a lot of other it seems, photographers to shoot. A forest is chaos and within that chaos we as photographers have to make a coherent composition, draw elements together, make it work. I spent a long time (too long probably according to the family that was waiting on me) in this one area alone trying to figure out how to piece this together. In the end I did a 5 image DOF bracket to make sure everything was sharp front to back (new technique I was trying out) and am happy with the result here.

And honestly, VERY little color work done here...it really is that green! (now if only you could feel how cold it was, haha)

Thanks!

Funny, you went from Oregon to Kauai. I went 7 years to/from Seattle to Kona, switching every 3-4 months! Then to Thailand for last 6 years, before coming home to Miami...

I miss the gree-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-e-een AND the soft, gentle rain, in the forests.

Been all over this planet. PNW is my fav...

Thanks for such a great photo!

Wow, that looks like a picture taken from a fairy tale book with all the undergrowth and the moss. Somewhere the witch is hiding, I'm sure ;) .

I also like the sharpness. It's often great when you focus on one spot and the rest gets blurry, but I also like it when everything is sharp and you can see every little detail.

I like your photo very much. For me, it emphasizes why it is so important to save these old growth forests (and the wildlife that depends on them) rather than turning all our forests into tree farms.
