I liked the yellow color of the leaves that were backlit from the sun shining through them. I shot at f/16 to help get a starburst with the sun shining through the leaves for the featured image. This was near the end of one of the paths through the woods at the Park.

Here is the second image from Our “Walk In The Woods” series the other day. There was not much sunlight along the path in the woods so it seemed like a lot of the subjects were mushrooms or other fungi. Again a multi-image shot, photographed @f/4, 300mm to have a shallow depth of field to highlight the areas I wanted to be sharp and to keep the background softer and darker to make the main section stand out. 4 images blended in Photoshop. I also did not want to brighten the images too much so as to maintain the Darkness of the area. The third image below, again fungi on a decaying tree limb. As before, a series of focus points & images @f/4, handheld. Assembled in Photoshop.
