[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today I returned to Langdons Creek,the small forest stream that I visited yesterday.
This stream flows down from the Paparoa Ranges,through mixed Nothofagus,(beech),native broadleaf and podocarp forest,to flow into the Grey River just a few hundred metres upstream of the small settlement and bridge at Stillwater.
Once again,it was very overcast,which is ideal for photographing forest landscapes,but drizzling with rain a little at times,which was a nuisance.
Today,though,I had my tripod with me,and was able to improve on yesterdays hand held shot.
This is a shot of a typical section of streambed,with lots of mosses,ferns,and sooty black beech tree trunks to be seen.
Its amazing the difference that shooting in manual mode on a tripod makes.
I thought yesterdays hand held shot was pretty good considering the very low light levels,but if I'd had a tripod it would have been clearer like this.

I hope you enjoy the shot.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Lord,
such a scenic and beautiful forest with a lovely stream.
The lush greens is so lovely and peaceful.
excellent piece of shot.
Genuine and authentic surroundings.


hello Steve
great picture of this nice forest where i like to walk with my camera
nice light and good details
great shot
greeting lou

My good friend Esteve,

You have appealed to use a tripod and has succeeded magnificently deep photo. The fact that we could use an aperture f/8 (Versus the previous photo with f/2.8) has enhanced the details and nature of substance appears to "walk with us" when I look at this picture. You showed great ability to learn very quickly to get the best for your SX10! Very well done, very good work!

Hi Steve,

A fine capture with good colors and detail,you have a quite steady hand to shoot under these lightconditions,although a tripod is sometimes better of course,anyway tfs this upload,

Bonjour Steve,

Ta photo a attiré mon attention. Elle n'est pas classique, ni tape à l'œil!
Elle est très naturelle et ça c'est très plaisant.
Ce qui me dérange, c'est le cadrage. Où se trouve le centre d'intérêt ? Mes yeux vont sur toute la photo sans se fixer.

Je te livre ce que je perçois, je ne suis pas une pro!

Merci pour ce détour dans la forêt
