Photo of Australian Eucalyptus Forest from Dandenong Ranges located approximately 35 km east of Melbourne in state of Victoria.
Australia has many forests of importance due to significant features, despite being one of the driest continents. Australia has approximately 147 million hectares of native forest which represents some 19% of land use.
The majority of Australia's trees are hardwoods, typically eucalypts. There are more than 700 species of eucalyptus, mostly native to Australia.
On warm days eucalyptus forests are sometimes shrouded in a smog-like mist of vaporized volatile organic compounds; the Australian Blue Mountains in NSW take their name from the haze.

Good morning Miro,
Eucalyptus tress have many types, our Eucalyptuses in Israel looks whole different, yet they came from Australia some 100 years ago.
I like the green dominating colors here, DOF through the woods with fine light within.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

The vegetation is a natural frame to the trees. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the trees and of the vegetation. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Congratulations on your very interesting notes which I might add not too many Australians would know very little about Eucalyptus Forests.
[ Including me ]
Well done on your presentation I like it very much.

You certainly found lots of treasures in this beautiful forest. The atmosphere is great with some fresh colours and tones especially in the foreground!
Indeed a grand walk about by all accounts!! It's brilliantly composed work making use of the fleeting sun light through the trees and the awesome display of trickled light seeping through the fresh green fern creating a fine contrast. You have timely captured this nature in a magical and very relaxing moment, superbly crafted and thought through. Well done, TFS

How did you manage to get in there, it looks so dense? I really like the deep colors of this forest which are brought to life from the fine exposure. I especially enjoy the prominent tree trunk on the left with the many others behind, the vertical lines give great contrast to the horizontal composition. The slight bit of highlights on a small portion of the eucalyptus is an eye catching element. Your note is very informative as well, interesting facts. Well done!

Je ne comprends pas pourquoi tu as été éjecté du NPL, bizarre, j'ai lu, mais comme c'est tout en anglais, j'ai de la peine, mais la critique doit être acceptée c'est certain c'est la base de tout démocratie et de partage, et c'est comme cela qu'on progresse.
Tu peux essayer ce site : http://nicou.aminus3.com/community/, là tu peux mettre en lien avec ton propre site personnel.

The "colonnade" of the tree trunks and beautiful green fans of the undergrowth make a special atmosphere of Australian eucalyptus forest. A very attractive composition, good light, lovely colors and perfect quality of the capture!
krzychu30 (8817) 2013-02-10 8:34
I think the forest is a little bigger and impressive from most european forests.The trees looks really gigantic and the lush,vivid greenery makes fabulous foreground.I liek the way you composed the scene.Not easy task concerning its vastness,but you managed to present this scene excellently.Well done!
Have a good evening
PaulVDV (15017) 2013-02-10 13:37
This is really a wonderful nature and forest picture with the many trees standing so close together and with the large ferns making this wood almost impenetrable.
The way the green ferns enclose the trunks increases the feeling of pureness.
Best regards, Paul

Bel effet graphique des arbres couper pour donner de la profondeur et plus impact aux feuillages bien vert, belle réalisation

A fantastic picture. I love the colors and sharpness. Incredible details and light. I do like the textures and the shapes of Eucalyptus.
Have a nice evening and weekend,

Hello dear Miro
A beautiful view of the rainforest. These are not eucalyptus trees, although there may have been eucalypts elsewhere in the forest. The giant ferns are lovely, and contribute such an atmosphere of tranquillity to the image. Nice work, the tight framing works really well.

efektowne spojrzenie na las
jemaflor (68837) 2013-02-23 8:04
Nice view with these eucalyptus, good contrast between green leaves and trees, light is well managed.
ourania (12331) 2013-02-23 10:00
a very harmonious and pleasant image. I like very much the rhythm created by the repetitive natural pattens and the depth with which we are able to enjoy it. The play of light and shadow, the beautiful colours and their effective contrasts, the neat framing and the delightful atmosphere of the forest have produced a very vibrant and elegant picture. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
