THERE IS A FULL RESOLUTION VERSION in the link of the note.

Another "deep in the forest" view... I like this places so much.
This one is taken with circular polarizer, and I had to take 16 photos to obtain a decent 3.2 exposure period with low amount of wind.

I have plenty of forest photographs which I do not post becuase TN 800 pix. maximun format is not suitable for them.
I like when postprocessing, but after resizing, I feel all the space dissapears, and image turns into a plain view, so I discard.
TN Large format is good for lanscapes but a minimun panoramic aspect ratio is needed, so no suitable for this kind of photos either.

This time you can download a 2 Mb. full resolution version HERE, so you can even zoom in to see all the details, to show you what I mean.

Hope you like!

Hi Cristina and Felipe,
it's a wonderful shot and I'm a little jelous.
I tried it several times to get such a silky effect of the water, but all the time it was too dark or too bright. You made a fantastic shot, thanks

Hi Felipe and Cristina,
Stunning details shown in this deep look into the forest. The DOF is perfect. I really like the effects the slow shutter had on the water. Exposure in the mixed light is perfect with very accurate color even on the white flowers. Excellent work.

Maravilloso sitio y preciosa la foto,

Hola Felipe y Crsitina, esta mañana a las 7,30, he acabado con una carcajada al ver el comentario en mi foto sobre mi traductor de inglés. :-). La verdad es que de inglés nada de nada. A veces intento colocar palabras que no puedan llevar a la confusión en la traducción, pero cuando voy con prisas,...

El paisaje que habéis capatado es precioso, con siempre ese toque mágico de humedad y composición tan cuidados. Vuestra tierra es maravillosa.

Intentaré revisar las traducciones, ni me imagino lo que se puede estar leyendo por ahí. :-).

Un cordial saludo

José Luis

Hi Filipe

Such a beautiful place and photo!
The ling shutter effect on the water here is again wonderful while the large DOF works fantastic in getting every single thing in focus here.
The colors and contrast are beeutiful everywher and the composition created by the waterfall is charming.
The fact that you posted a link for the full-sized version is also terrific and lets us appreciate such a awesome work in full size!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Felipe.
A beautiful shot!
This looks so much like the places I visit each week.
Our forest here is green and mossy too, but with different plants.
(What are the flowering plants in the foreground?) I'll have a look at the 2mb version and see.
Excellent work my friend!

I have been on a few good forest walks this week. It is autumn here and there are hundreds of amazing fungi around, so watch for some beautiful new fungi shots.

Cheers, Steve
