Here's a shot from up at Lamington National Park back in April. I was playing around with the plane of focus and basically ran it along through the interlocking branches above the path. I might do things a bit differently next time I am back in the same spot, but the overall effect is close to what I was looking for.
This is one of those photos that profits from being printed a little bigger I reckon. The amount of fine detail in the branch canopy is pretty cool...
Works really well, you get pulled right through the image.
just had a look at your picture of Mt Stirling. I'm with Shane on this. The low angle and depth of field remind of David Muench's work, which I have always liked.
great shot, like the way the path leads you into the picture, must have been a challenge to set up,
Hi Mike thanks for the comments, much appreciated,
Thanks Shane, Brian. Actually the main challenge was a group of walkers who came along the path (which I was pretty effectively blocking) just as I was getting ready to load the film...
