    Quote:First, I can say that I don't agree at all with Leekins. Photography is not just about making copies of reality. It is also very much about creating images which in turn create responses from viewers (which this one has done!) And I really like the crystal sharpness of those tiny drops on the left and the pastel softness of the fungus. For me, it's a beautiful image.


    Here is a very similar image SOOC to compare colours, saturation, and focal point. This image does not make your eye wander off the left and out of frame because it is focused and sharp in the wrong place. It doesn't make you cringe with the excessive and false greenness of it, and the moss and everything else has a range of natural shades which is far more pleasing to the eye.

    Can I first of all say Mr Leekins that as the individual responsible for the taking and processing of the image then I always appreciate constructive comment. To that end I accept some of the the things you say about the focus point. I wanted to use a shallow depth of field mainly to knock out background distraction but this did result on losing focus of the tree root. Apologies if the image made you 'cringe' but I can say that i did not add saturation at all. In fact one of the things that influenced me at the time was the almost luminous nature of the greens in the forest that day in the morning light.

    Yes it is. Early days but so far quite impressed. Easy to carry around too! - the reason I bought it and sold my Canon 500 mm (as much as I loved that lens).

    Not sure what difference it makes. It's just a photograph. If it helps you I tagged it bwc (British wildlife centre).
    Thanks for your useful input tho!
