Ditto to my comment on your earlier post. I think I like this darker version even better when I saw it fullsized. Nice work, Pierre.

love the strong vertical lines of the compo. gives such depth and pressure. more dark and more intimist than the 2, each has it's own atmosphere.can't choose between the two^^!
love it Pierre

id say this beats your other rainforest picture, i like having the colours naturalized a bit more. i think a bit more foreground wouldnt have hurt this image tho, to bump everything 'up' about 1/6th or so would probably make the composition a bit stronger, but its a really great picture, and you probably had a reason for not doing it anyways ;)

hey there, pierre :) i didn't forget to check your wonderful gallery.. but i've been veeeery busy lately... so your image were simply waiting for me in my "to do" list to check them out, heheh :)

i love your rainforest series and this is my favourite.. i would like to comment on all of them, but time flies.. i think it's the dark atmosphere in this one that caught my eye... the lightning is perfect and all those shadows really give a certain fantastic spirit to the image.. is this from a lord of the rings movie? :))
but, i must say.. it looks like it's haunted :) watch out.. you can never tell are you alone or not... :))

i bet it had been a wonderful trip and i hope you had had a great time :) thank you for sharing all your recent images with us, they truly deserve the highest marks they got and will get from this author :)

enjoy your day :o)

Not bad, how did you get the fog to appear transparent, I can't do that if my life depended on it, it always comes out looking like white smoke.

Hello Pierre, this is one of my all-time favorite photos. Such great mystery. The colors are wonderful and I love the faint clarity of the more distant trees in the mist.

Also, thank you for the comment on Piering. As I recall, I didn't enhance the saturation in that photo, but the bird had what I refer to as a cool shadow on him, making him appear a little blue. Sometimes even the natural saturation is too much :)
