Another lovely mysterious forest shot John
photography is about capturing the light and you have certainly mastered it !
Shadow just gets better and better John. This is superb. Is'nt it about time he had his own camera ??.
What a beuatiful bit of light, so well captured.
Another great image
He's getting good, lol. Doing him proud.
Superb again John

Am I missing something here?

You and Shadow are certainly the masters of the forest John. This is another superb shot in the series.

Still can't see the dog, even after a good long sleep
I loved yesterday's shot, full of vibrancy and contrasting light - a great woodland scene I'd loved to have seen.
I can see that you've found a blob of light in the woods which is unsual in a way, but compositionally there's a few things I don't really follow - the large expanse of dark area to the right for instance? Would that be better cropped off? Does the framing tree to the left of the shot work or is it too dark to perform its function? Is there a strong enough focal point to hold the attention? What is the focal point - and could oyu have made more of it with a longer lens, or getting closer? It's good to ask all those kind of questions when taking the shot - keeps you on your toes.
I've had a go at stuff like this in woodlands and it's not straight forward to get a striking or interesting composition when you may only get a second or 2 of light before it disappears, so credit for trying it.
Thanks for your comments Ade. The object of the image is to show a splash of light within a dark area of forest. Hence the dark area on the right, which to me, is an important part of the picture. Cropping it off would leave the light area bang in the centre.
The tree on the left is holding that side in, again to emphasise the darkness around the light. It may not be a winner but I like it.
I appreciate your comments though and it is interesting to hear another viewers impressions
Beautiful - Jude.
Like the light in this - well captured.
I love the light,depth and hues in this one that show up amongst the textures,I like this snippet of light amongst the woods where the light jumps out at you,magical.take care,Ann
Happy new year for 2009 hope you had a wonderful christmas.
Well spotted and captured John,great image.
You make photography so simple and so effective.
I think sometimes we analyse things too much! This is fabulous and your dog definitely gets my vote as location finder of the year!
Nice study in light and shade.
Beautiful fine detail and lighting detail John
and a lovely composition.
Happy New Year
excellent,i like it
Lovely lighting on this image.
super capture of light and detail,happy new year
Great title for this shot.....the true meaning of the word 'Photography'. Shadow has done really well to find all these.
Happy New Year John.
Can I borrow your dog for a weekend please? Interesting comments on this image and clearly some debate around teh compostional strength. For me there is just enough detail and interest rhs to justify it being there - it provides the very important contrast to the splash of light - indeed it is the essence of the shot. I think these dark light contrasts are devlishly difficult (witness my last upload attempt) but this is superbly handled - by someone who is aquiring an uncanny knack for this type of work.
Brilliant work again
A great capture again, everything about this is good excellent light and comp, worth its weight in gold that dog.
