Shadows of Eden I by Matthew-T Shadows of Eden I by Matthew-T
Shadows of Eden

I can HONESTLY say that this photo was BARELY EDITED. I just caught it at the right light. Just a bit of sharpening and some contrast adjustments. Colors are as shot, so is the lighting (the colors and lighting are 100% natural :)).
Location: Japanese Gardens, Portland, OR

This is absolutely gorgeous. The green and yellow makes the shadow aspect stronger.

So. Very. Gorgeous. I have seen light like that before, but I've never seen anyone capture it like that.

I just love this picture. The light looks like amber. What season was it?

This was during September, so the transition from Summer to Autumn, hence the yellowing leaves. :)

I fav'd Eden 1 long time ago, and I just had to look at it again. Then I found about your Eden Series. It's so great to know you had others photos from that exact location. AMAZING!
