_____Random Info
   I often wonder why the shots that you don't even plan can turn out to be some of your personal favorites and sometimes even if the pictures aren't as breathtaking as others you still like them way more. I've taken some pictures of really spectacular sights over the years and still some of the best I've taken at least for me personal are those which were taken under the right conditions, with a good friend or alone on a Tuesday night at 4am during the semester leading you with utterly no sleep but a picture.

   This is one of those pictures. At first sight it's nothing more but a stream in the forest but there are so many little details to discover and so much the composition actually unveils overtime that I've really grown to love this shot. I was there in the rain holding my hand over the lens so no drops get onto the filters actually on my way to some other spot when I walked next to this small river for some time always checking for a composition. Then about 45 minutes alongside the stream this particular sight struck me and I rather spent half an hour working in the rain than walking to my actual destination.

   And I've had it as my desktop background for quite some time now and I am still content with it due to its rich details so I think this would make a great wallpaper; or what do you guys think?

Wunderschön. Dieses satte Grün und die Teils knorrigen Bäume machen solche Plätze und Fotos zu meinen Lieblingen!
Ich persönlich hätte vermutlich weniger Vordergrund drangelassen, aber auch so eine gute Komposition.

Ich mochte einfach das Moss unterwasser auf der rechten Seite in Kontrast mit dem Sand auf der anderen. Aber im Printip stimmt das. Vllt wäre ein horizontal Panorama sinnvoller gewesen. :D

Nice shot!

I know what you mean, I have several shots in my gallery that I am very proud of that to most people seem "boring" or uninteresting. Most of my personal favorite shots have less than 30-40 favorites on here.

I can see why you like this one though, the composition is great and the lighting is perfect for a shot like this. The greens are beautiful and I like the little specs of what I assume are dead leaves.

Glad you appreciate this shot as much as I do. I guess there is always a dissonance between peoples perception though. It's sad but only logical. Also thanks for noticing the composition since I was really working hard on that one especially having in mind that it'll have to be something working as a wallpaper. ;)

als erstes mal, sehr grün :P aber jetzt mal im ernst bei der Farbgebung wären die Alpen sicherlich nicht der Ort der mir als erstes einfallen würde... :) aber ich weiß ja wohin es dich verschlagen hatte :) alles in allem ein sehr ruhiges Bild! Schön!

Also ich dachte auch so: "Hm, irgendwie sieht das hier aus wie der pazifische Nordwesten mit dem ganzen Moss und dergleichen", war wohl einer der kältesten Sommer seit Jahrzehnten dort unten, auf dem Watzmann lag sogar Schnee im August. Und der Niederschlag hat dafür gesorgt, dass da halt alles saftig war, hat mich echt gefreut sowas machen zu können ohne direkt so weit reisen zu müssen. Aber die Columbia River Gorge Area ist natürlich nochmal ein Stück imposanter. ;)
