The Florida riverways, swamps, grassy plains have extremely challenging lighting. This is a shot which exemplifies these challenges, yet tames the beast.

Despite some of my own work, I do like subtle.  Beautiful image!

Very attractive, Russ. I might be tempted to clone out the rather ugly vertical pole to the right of the hanging stuff, though.

Thanks Jeremy. That's exactly what I did once I realized I'd left it in for this post.

I like the directions you are taking on your walks. Larix deciduata (I think) alawys seemed to have an almost animate whisper to it...they have all turned copper and shed here but so interesting to see it in this company...looking forward to more...

Very nice Russ! Unusual subject matter (for me, anyway).

I am sure wandering around there is far less stressful than wandering around noisy streets!

This is very lovely. There's a bit of an Eliot Porter feel here, with the firm grasp of color and texture. As with Porter, I find the composition a bit.. I don't know how to say this clearly, "straight on" perhaps? It's not particularly subtle or complex, it feels like a faithful record of a beautiful thing, rather than a photograph apart from the thing itself?

This isn't a good thing or a bad thing, I don't intend it as a negative, merely as an observation.
