3 Oct 2010 - 2:58 PM

Good subject and nicely captured.
It is a tad on the dark side, always a problem in forests! Use a torch with the reflector to add a bit of diffused light on the subject next time. Also try using a higher apeture, between f11 and f16 to get more of the subject in sharp focus and if you look closely the actual point of focus is just in front of the main subject so the back of it becomes softer at f8. Lastly and this is just my opinion try portrait format, there is too much moss in the F/G.
Hope this helps?
