Moody Greens: A couple of final shots from the weekend

The last day of the weekend in Derbyshire saw me take a half-hour to explore some more moody dark shots, this time in the woods above Darley Dale.


A stacked D800E macro shot of a small fern growing out of moss on a rock; a D300 shot of a larger fern growing out of a wall:


Tinkersley Wood Moss & Fern





Stack of 17 frames, cropped for composition

ISO 100 13” f/16




Whitworth Road Fern




D300/18-200VR @ 65mm, circular polarizer

ISO 200 1″ f/16

4×5 crop


On this occasion I think that the technically far simpler shot of the fern in the wall has turned out rather better, though you’ve got to love the incredible detail the D800 file provides.  I think I may reedit the original full-frame merged stack file for a more inspiring composition.
