This is a composite of 8 images in two rows of 4. Actually, each of the photos in the bottom row of 4 is itself a composite of 2 photos---same subject, different exposure. One set of exposures was the same as for the upper set--very dark for the greens. The other set was exposed for the greens in the foreground. Then, with some PhotoShop magic, I combined the images at the two exposures so that I could hold some detail in the closer part of the forest, but match to the darker forest of the upper image in the stitch process. The original file is approximately 80Mb(!), 4300X2100 pixels, downsized to 576X282 for this web image.
