In homage to trees and rainforests. For some reason the mossy growth on the tree trunks had a bright orange tinge to it at this time of the year. This was creating an amazing contrast with all the vivid greens and grabbed my attention immediately. The result … a totally eery scene, captured even more intensely by three separate handheld (HDR) exposures. Processed with Photomatix Pro.

MOST VIEWED IMAGES of all works by Bruce Dickson.

Simply respecting and celebrating life … in all its magnificent diversity … is nowadays the truly radical act of any artist.

It is no accident that one of the most significant ways of revitalizing the spirit and reconnecting with our deeper senses & more worthy selves is found in communion with nature and life itself … and in our power to imagine.

There is much that is wondrous to behold, value, defend and gain strength from.

    Great shot , but can you do me a favour and add some information on the HDR process, things like , handheld or tripod, how many exposures if you have the setting even better, what software was used. That way I can accept into HDR Photography group



  • No problem Philip – Canon G9 – three exposures hand held and processed using Photomatix Pro. Hope this helps.
