Little by little I’m learning to enjoy Animal Kingdom more and more especially all of the details and art that goes into something as enormous as the Tree of Life.
This was a tricky shot because shooting up into the sky gives you a completely different reading than metering off the under part of the branches which are darker. Then you’ve got highlights and running water. I aimed for the center, planning to dodge shadows and possibly burn highlights in later. Here’s the end result with very little post-production.
Canon PowerShot S5 IS, ISO 80, f4, 1/80
