Both are very nice but that first one has a witchy, intriguing thing going on - I think it must be under water? Love the deep saturated colors and waviness!

I wonder if your second might be a beech tree of some kind? Water in any form certainly brings out the beauty of wood - unless of course its on one's hardwood flooring.:wink:

Great thread and I look forward to it growing over time.:cool:

not underwater BB, but certainly in a very wet wood ... neither is the sharpest, down not to focus but very dim light and thus overly long exposures (IS doesn't rescue everything !) ... must get a Noctilux

Beautiful light in that one Traam! Which camera were you using here and did you add the light source?

Dave both you and Pictor/Christian have given us very different views. I am guessing the burn could be from a natural fire source, but Christian yours seems to show the violence that man has inflicted.

Thanks to all for this thread.

This was on the LX5, light source is a stream of sunlight shining through the leaves above. I can't remember exactly what I did but if I recall correctly I emphasised the sunlit area by stopping down while keeping the shutter speed constant, so it looks like a studio shot with a dark background.

I had sort of envisaged that this thread would attract colour images, interesting that it is attracting a surprising amount of b&w ... here's a bit of colour from me though ...
