La Foce, Chianciano This is a tight-in crop, just an allusion to the zig-zag road,
of a location more usually photographed as a distant view. But I knew these different varieties of trees existed in the area, and wanted to see if they could be brought together.

When I first found this scene, however, it was front-lit – flat, and overwhelmed by detail in each of the areas. Returning later in the day, backlighting has added more depth, separating the layers, and has emphasized the shapes of the trees, reducing some to silhouettes and highlighting the crowns of others.

It goes without saying, but always consider whether a composition you are evaluating may be better suited to lighting conditions at an alternate time of day.
