Very much like how you caught the sun just peeking around the trunk. Normally, for landscapes I prefer a sharp, clear coloration. But, your capture expands my preferences. The softened colors affect sets a nice quiet, end of day mood.
By the EXIF it seems this is a fairly old capture. I am sure your techniques have improved since. But those shown here of several years ago indicates fine capability even then. Well done.
Thanks Bobweb for the positive comments.
To be honest, when I took this picture, I really didn't know very much about the technical aspects of photography, so, I just experimented. But, I knew what I liked when I saw it, so, I had to try to capture it. Since then, I have learned a lot and have upgraded from a $300 camera, to a Canon 50D. I'm amazed at how much there always is to learn!Color is music to my nose.
Seems to me that a quality of a good photographer is to always be experimenting. It seems to me that what divides an experienced photographer from a novice is his breath of experience from his experiments and his compiled understanding of the consequences of that experimentation so he can draw on that experience when he finds himself under familiar circumstances. The photographer that stops experimenting is the one who is simply doing the safe and familiar things over and over again. I don't think such a photographer is having much fun any longer. So, I don't see what there is to apologize about, to be honest. I only hope that you will favor us with more of your fine work, here at the Blog.
I agree. People were designed to explore and create and experiment. Take that out of photography and there's really nothing left to enjoy.
As I continue learning photography I sure hope I never lose my sense of adventure and the thrill of trying something new.Color is music to my nose.
