Winner: "Oregon Rainforest" By Beth Baker


"This image was taken in Oregon at Ecola State Park,” explains Baker. “Photographing in the rainforest is all about capturing the rich greens in the moss, trees and ferns and trying to find an elegant composition amongst the relative chaos of the forest. Sometimes it can be frustrating trying to find that composition that works, and this was no exception. After struggling with a few too-busy compositions, I recalled some advice I'd heard before: step back away from the scene and consider what the eye is drawn too from a greater distance. In this case I moved to the far side of the road and things fell into place.”

Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon EF 24-105mm f4L IS USM II. Exposure: 1/5 sec., f/11, ISO 400.
