Fallen Green by Isaac Vaisman M.D., FACRO

October 2019 - Fallen Green

About the Image(s)

Fallen Green was created this past week at the Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge near Spokane-Washington State. I have been there for the whole week on the occasion of the yearly PSA 81st Annual Conference of Photography, and had the great time meeting with our colleague and group member Erik Rosengren. On one of the outings on a cloudy morning I found this moss bright green, on top of the fallen and dried pine cones, creating a very nice contrast of colors. I used a Nikon D850 with the Nikkor lens 80-400 mm f/4.5-5.6 @ 250 mm and with these settings: ISO 2000, f/5.6, 1/3200 sec hand held. The image was corrected for white balance, exposure, texture, cropped and added a vignette.

This is a very gentle still-life created by nature. Composition is nice with the diagonal line of the pine cones running from lower left to upper right, and the green moss placed in a strong position. I wish we could have made it to Spokane this year. It would have been good to have met you and also to to have met up again with my good friend Erik.   Posted: 10/02/2019 07:58:11

To be honest, I am not enthusiastic about this composition. I think it could have been improved if the green moss on the right were bigger, though I don't know if my Photoshop skills could do it convincingly. And of course doctrine says you shouldn't have two of things.   Posted: 10/09/2019 15:13:26

Hi Isaac
I love images like this ones were most people would walk past and never notice as Guy said a natural still life really well composed the positioning of the moss for me is spot on it certainly works for me keep those eyes peeled Isaac   Posted: 10/10/2019 12:05:39
