This is what I was looking at. And why I wanted to get my camera down low, just above the ground. You can see why I stopped here from this picture taken on my iPhone 6 Plus.
This is the set up for the shot before the one where the tree is in shadow, shooting straight at the sun. For the image I posted earlier on today I moved my tripod to the right so I was in the shadow of the tree.
And you can also see how the iPhone coped with the image capture. This is why we need DSLRs, Lightroom, Photoshop - all that good stuff. Of course I haven't processed the iPhone images but there is a lot less to work with than on RAW files captures using my Canon 6D.
I need to get on with this post now so I am going to post the rest of the edited images over the next couple of days in which time I have hopefully completed my article.
