says… Heather is an in­cred­i­ble nat­u­ral­ist and seemed to know all of the names of the wildlife we en­coun­tered. She even spot­ted some lichen growing among the moss and sug­gested it’d be best to pho­to­graph it from above. “I think it needs some gar­den­ing,” Heather said. She moved a cou­ple of twigs that were rest­ing on the lichen. “Never cut any­thing back or tam­per with a scene dras­ti­cally, but if you can move a small twig here or there it makes the shot neater,” she ad­vised. I hadn’t thought about al­ter­ing the scene be­fore, but Heather was right. The chal­lenge with this im­age was get­ting all of the lichen sharp, and ar­rang­ing all of the el­e­ments in a bal­anced com­po­si­tion. I think it works quite well, though it could do with one or two more stems on the left!
