A walk in the Forest.

A lovely forest around King Alfred's Tower, where these pictures were taken. In the first PiP I was having trouble focusing on the leaf, maybe because the light was too strong, but this is how it came straight from the camera. Maybe you can have too much bokeh!! Let me know what you think. The second PiP is how I hoped it would look.

A very nice collection from the the forest Rosa. Both PiPs look fine to me. The light in those situations can be very tricky, I would certainly be happy enough with the results.

Thank you for your very kind comments Doug. I was getting annoyed with the camera on the first PiP....or maybe myself ;-))

All the best, Rosa.

Thank you Gudrun. It's strange, but I would probably have liked the first PiP more if someone else had taken it. Maybe too critical of my own picture.

I really like the main image Rosa.........the light coming through the canopy is beautiful and there are some nice dappled shadows.

I like the bokeh in the first PiP.......maybe you had trouble focusing because the light was too strong or the contrast between the subject and the background wasn't high enough. Getting closer and using manual focus would have helped I think, and maybe using a wider aperture.

I like the second PiP too. The light on the leaves is lovely.
