Great shot.

One of the best Muir Woods photos I've seen, good job Marilyn!

Very beautiful composition and capture Marilyn. You can feel the tranquility of the forest in this image. Well done.

Best regards, Tom

Thank you, David, Bruce, and Tom. Because of the extreme contrasts, I found it a very difficult place to photograph. I'm glad if this caught some of the atmosphere. (This is a merge of three hand-held bracketed shots. Fortunately there was no wind, or I couldn't have done that!) Greetings, Marilyn

You've really caught the mood of the woods in this one, Marilyn...also the closeness of the area. Wonderfully framed.

A wonderfully restive image, Marilyn. You are inspiring with your bracketing - I will have to play with that. Best, alicia

Another of your wonderful "window" images, Marilyn. A natural window.

Thank you, Hank, John, Alicia, and Ian, for your thoughtful comments. When I think about it, the only hope for composing a photo in those woods is to find a "window" to frame it. And, Alicia, a number of times I've been saved in difficult circumstances by bracketing and merging.

Marilyn, ieri ti avevo commentato questa bella foto. Ti avevo fatto una interpretazione in **HDR inviandoti questa elaborazione++.

Probabilmente non ci Hai fatto caso. Mi piacerebbe conoscere il Tuo parere.

Un abbraccio. Ciao, Vinicio.

This looks like light verses shade in this photo Marilyn it reminds me of a forest that I just visited. Youve captured the mood well. Best Wishes, Karen.

Marilyn Whiteley on November 15, 2008

Thank you, Karen. I find it a challenge to capture the mood in places like this, so I'm very pleased that you think I did! Best wishes, Marilyn
