I got my 5d2 last week and thought i'd take it with me on my Valentines Day walk with the girlfriend.

We ended up at Blenhiam Palace in Oxfordshire and the light broke through the clouds whilst i was in the wooded section and resulted in this shot.

The full res file does look fantastic and i am super happy with the quality of my 5D2.

Anyway, there is the the resulting photo that i've got round to processing so far.

Please take a look and give me some C&C.

Cheers,

Chris

Nice scene, beautiful light. It might have been more interesting with your girlfriend walking through the trees...

It's a good shot as it, I wouldn't boost the saturation. Plenty of color already there!

Well it looks a bit too green to me. Digital cameras often render colors with too much of a green tint when faced with a scene that is largely green.The tint needs to be adjusted more towards the red side.

What's the mushroom shaped thingy towards the back of the grove? Is it something you wanted to capture in the photo? I do like the patterns of the trees and branches, just enough of them to let the sky show through.

Thanks,

If you don't recognize it, it's the Gorn from the original Star Trek series. I took it a few years ago at the Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas. They shut it down a couple of months back though so the Gorn is gone, probably to be auctioned off eventually.
