Moss & Tree

Posted by
john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 25 January 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This part of the wildlife refuge made me think that I was in southern Georgia. This was along a wooden walkway over a swampy area about 20 meters from where I took the "Sky" photograph two days ago.

COMPARING BILL'S AND MY SHOTS yesterday. I really liked the way that Bill included more of the pond. My cropping decision was to make the barn more dominant, but it obviously had a price.

MORE ON COLOR PROFILE - When downloading a shot, make certain that under "Options/Effects" the check box for "Preserve Metadata and Color Profile" is checked. If left to Am3, I end up with overly saturated colors.

another world of green lichens and mosses, a world where green primary spring moisture. I would see a prehistoric monster emerge from the trees, I love this unreal atmosphere.
