I never posted my photos from my Costa Rica trip but the sun through the woods reminded me of this shot in the rain forest.

I don't think so Leo38
I've eaten lots of puffballs and they are quite smooth, even little ones
the texture of this is what drew me to take the picture
those are pine needles on the forest floor, this thing was quite small and growing in the shade
the puffballs I know grow in pastures with full sun

Must be a new species of fungus from the family Ontarionsis.  I think the name is Scooterensis daveisii

was coming out of the woods with a load in the trailer and took two shots with different settings on the camera
first is "landscape"



second is "dusk/dawn"



the difference in how the camera processes the info is quite dramatic

Both are interesting shots, you would think they were taken at different times of day. Does either come close to what you were percieving?
Digital photography is fantastic. If it's a shot I don't want to miss, I can set the camera to process three different exposures at once. One a little lighter and one a little darker than the camera setting. There is software that will blend the three to give the best photo or it can be done manually, to suit what your perception of the scene was or what you wish to portray. Very useful for shaded areas with bright sky, light filtering through forrest, etc. With most film cameras it would have meant resetting the F stop and taking three different pictures, still no way to blend the three shots, pick the best, dodging and burning during the print making. Of course, a person can now scan the negatives onto the computer and do the same as with digital but a few more steps, involved.

dave you seem to be getting this, you might try shooting in the raw and if you have the right software to go with it the results are endless.

What kind of camera are you using.  What photo editing software?  Just curious.

Hey Phil
The light conditions were closest to the landscape shot but without the glare on the tree trunk, a mix of the two I guess.  Dramatic enough to get me to stop the tractor.
Diversion
The camera is a Nikon Coolpix L14 and haven't used any of the software other than Windows to download it from the camera.  What you see is what I shot.

I like to take pictures and hope that I frame the image well enough to make it interesting.  Saw a tree root growing over a rock and it reminded me of a snake.

I never thought of changing the colour or texture to enhance the image. doh!

Google aerial photos had my backyard right after my old elm tree got taken down.  There was cut-up wood everywhere.  Great photos all.

Robin I love that sky image.

Airplane Gas, the area's only remaining reminder of the days of Wigwam Motels, before Interstates and corporations turned most stops into cookie cutter images of the previous. Not that consistency isn't comforting, knowing that the distant lights will provide familiar arches but you have to dig a little deeper now to find a burger from some small town you happen into, yet still remember 40 years from now.
