During my last visit to Australia, early last year, I became fascinated by the temperate rain forests around Melbourne and in Tasmania. However, I found them extremely difficult to photograph Ė a combination of low light, high contrast and lots of fine detail, being the cause.

After a considerable amount of tinkering with a variety of post-processing techniques, Iíve now come up with this approach.

Thanks for looking. Worth viewing large if you can

Thanks for the award, Jon, it's much appreciated. To be honest, I processed this several months ago and have been quite unsure as to whether this treatment works or not - the positive feedback from you and others is re-assuring!

The processing looks rather painterly and seems to have removed quite a bit of detail. It does look good but my personal taste would be for something more subtle.
