Forest I

Some abstracts of the forest floor. I don’t know that much about flora and fauna, and was surprised that there was so much life still hanging on in December. I didn’t have to look long to find something going about its business. Maybe it’s there all year.

Most of these images are macro in the extreme. The greenery is spagnum moss (I think…) and the like. The spider’s body is a few millimeters in length, and that small bug is climbing a mushroom that itself is maybe only a centimeter in diameter. I wasn’t going to include the fauna here, thinking that it would detract from the soft greens of the moss. I might yet remove them.

Fujifilm X-T3, Laowa 65mm, Capture One 20. Contrast is lowered, as is sharpness, structure & clarity. Brightness is increased. There is a curve lifting the blacks.
