Subalpine Forest

Critique Style Requested: Standard

The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.


This image is from a recent trip to the central plateau of Tasmania, the actual forest extending along the shores of an alpine lake. The forest is host to many endemic species, including deciduous beech and pencil pines, many of which are over a thousand years old. This image shows the trunk of a pencil pine reaching through a low canopy of deciduous beech. My intention with this image was to portray the vibrancy and complexity of one of the many types of forest found in Tasmania.

Specific Feedback

Any feedback is appreciated! :slight_smile:

Technical Details

f/22, 1/5s, ISO 200, Some global adjustments in lightroom.

Keenan, I’d say that you have succeeded in showing the complexity of this forest well. I like the color shift from the yellowish, moss covered wood to the bright green of the leaves and how you’ve used the diagonal of the slope to separate the two.

Thank you mark!
