This is a photo from Macquarie Pass National Park. The sun was shinning through the canopy brightly, resulting in bright spots and plunging shadows, ideal for exposure bracketing, but I tried it in a single shot.

Jpeg, Raw CR3 and Raw DNG are here:Click here

Challenge ends Friday 25 February 2pm Sydney time (2am UTC)

Challenge is now closed! Only a few takers this time, and unfortunately for me (because it makes judging harder) all excellent entries. I think I'll give this one to Robert. A little brighter than real life, it was fairly dark, despite being around 10am and sunny, but I like the colours and handling of the shadows and highlights. A very close second is Hendrik, again, a little brighter than real life, but shifting the young palm to the centre works well. Followed by equal third between Bo and Ken's colour entries.

Thanks to everyone that participated, and it's over to you @RobD!

Thanks betamax! I wasn't expecting a win as I too thought my image was a bit too bright. I will start searching for an image to start the next challenge.
