Walking in Pools of Light by lemondog Walking in Pools of Light by lemondog
This was taken while walking off path through the undergrowth of Ashness Wood in the lake district.

This was the first sun we saw that day and what a lovely view under the trees.

This shot was taken in a true panaramic format using a tilt and shift lens.

See my journal for more info about tilt and shift lenses.

Wonderful shot, perhaps slightly oversaturated.

thank you! Yes the colours are fairly saturated but I was using a polarisor to get the effect, so it is intended :S

Okay well a polariser doesnt really do that....but its a very nice shot.

yes it does, not to saturate but to remove reflection from the desired angle and that in turn gives the effect of deeper more saturated colours, in this instance in the pools of light from the sun the colours would have been washed out as it was a damp day with moist leafs and so there was a lot of glare from the leafs thus giving the impression the colours were washed out. When I applied the polariser it removed the glare off the moist leafs and thus revealing a deeper more saturated shade of green. :)

Well yes I am fully aware of what a polariser does, I use one regularly. With the polariser alone though you would have a very different shot, the saturation of this shot is due predominantly to PP. Afterall a polariser only remove reflections of polarised light in one direction, not all reflections. Its effect can be very significant though in this case with the grass at numerous angles I suspect not. Even if it had removed all of the reflevtions the extremely vivid colour is not "natural" per se.

I'm not going to argue with you, but I do have to say, the only photoshop work I have done is to merge the 3 photographs from the tilt and shift lens from raw and to separate the contrast between the colours, I altered the colour balance in raw and the tonal curve but thats it.

I'm sorry you think that this is because of photoshop. I know polariser completely removes reflection from a very narrow angle, but it will also 'reduce' the amount of reflection from areas and nearby angles in decreasing effectiveness on a linear scale from total effectiveness to 90 degrees total non effectiveness. If you still don't believe me how this photo was taken, I can upload the one I took without the polariser.
But as a photographer yourself I'm sure that if you were to try and explain how you took a photo to someone else and yet they didnt believe you. How disappointed would you be for them for not believing you.

I only explain what I do and thats the truth, if someone doesn't believe me, not my problem, but theirs, but beyond that, keep your comments to yourself :)

Well as I am sure you know, you only have to alter the WB and contrast to saturate colours significantly. I apologise because I was quite rude to you.

thats ok :) I am having another look at the photo and I might try and use a slightly less strong tonal curve and what diffrence that makes. I will upload it in replacement of this one and then you'll have to let me know what you think of it. :)

Absolutely stunning! I love the monochromatic effect of the greens and the scene itself left me expecting to see a mythological creature pop its head around a tree trunk. Definitely a place I would like to be!
