A little experimental shot. Set my camera on a rock and just played with the light coming into the forest area in the late late afternoon. I really enjoyed my walk in the forest this past weekend.

Hi Linda.

Great idea here to go low and take in the rustles and shapes of the fallen leaves, I like the addition of the light arcing across, tfs

stv ;o))

A fine autumn posting with a 'wild' appeal, Linda B-)

Perfect details of the fallen leaves and a low POV really works out well here.
The sharpness and clarity are fantastic, and colors are natural.
The star-like appearance of Sun does another piece of beauty to the scene.
Well done!

Kind regards,

I like the result of your experiment. And I like the low pov. Flares can be a disruption but it worked well in this composition. Good lighting in spite of shooting into the sun, good dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Linda,

I like very much this sort of composition, The sun effect in star.
All this foliage on the ground, colors and the light are perfect.
Original POV, TFS.
My best regards.

Hi Linda,

Nice natural star flare,this is the kind of thing I get up to,lying down on the forest floor,getting all mucky and then having to go back into town to pick up my wife looking like something the cat dragged in.

Nice one Linda,
i have always been a fan of lens flare, especially when you get the colours that you have captured here,

Hi Linda...beautiful shot. Great light and tones. Nice work.
