Fairyland Falls

By MarcAdamus
Rainforest - beautiful, lush, dank, dreamy, fantastical, all those things. The morning, sun starting to break through, illuminating this canyon deep in the forest. Capture the experience!
I used a technique here, I call my 'condensation method'. I blew a layer of fog onto my lens four seconds into a six second exposure. This creates a soft halo around the highlights without sacrificing sharpness. It is an in-camera trick that works well in light such as this. It is similar to some variations of the photoshop 'Orton' effect. For me, it enhances the mood.

The condensation trick worked perfectly. I've seen a lot of nice forest photos, but this might be the greenest.

Please tell me where this was taken! The first word that came to my mind when I saw this photo was "Eden"...I'm not a religious person at all, but when I saw this it truly looked like a more perfect place than humankind could ever create.

Oh, hey, that's clever. I've had that happen to me accidentally a few times for sure and have enjoyed the results, but it never occurred to me to just do it intentionally. =P Thanks for the tip!

This is beautiful. Reminds me a little of Keith Parkinson. Also feels as if something is watching me behind one of those lush green plants.

How did you blow the fog? Straight on the surface of the lens or from side just in front of it?
