New Forest Rinefield Ornamental Drive....Non HDR

Best viewed in lightbox....click to view.

Probably one of the most photographed places in the New Forest, Rinefield Ornamental Drive.

 

I always have mixed feelings going there, it is very beautiful there....but also one of the most busiest. I hope no-one takes this the wrong way.....best to visit it nowhere near any school holidays, bank holidays.....or any holiday period. :-)

 

Famous for having some of the New Forest largest trees in..... Douglas firs and Giant Redwoods that were planted around the 1850's

 

If you don't mind getting off the main paths there are still some quiet spots to be found.

 

Sorry for the large updates I've added a small amount of HDR toning to them, but some people like to see what they looked like before the effect was added. Can be time consuming adding both so I may in the future just keep to posting one or the other.

 

I'm not a big fan of HDR use but for me in these woodlands scenes I can add a sense depth to the detail quickly without the need to use filters or taking multi shots and layering them later.

 

When I'm out walking and enjoying what nature has to offer......that's exactly what I want to be doing enjoying all that's around me and not worry about whether my white balance or ISO and aperture are correctly set!
