Canopy, Timberlands State Park

Shooting straight upward towards the canopy is something I always try in  forests, indeed it's a classic view of the aspens (See photographer Jim Goldstein's version).  Yet I'm often disappointed by the results. The canopy is a busy  mishmash of trees and branches, near and far, high and low, organized  and disordered, captivating and distracting, and its difficult to find a  nice photograph. Hiking with friends in the Timberlands State Park in  Central Connecticut, I saw a very interesting scene looking up. The  colors were vivid and a bit dim due to the strong cloud-cover, and the  scene was almost completely tessellated with distinct leaves. This is the photo essentially as I took it with only minor adjustments to blacks  and vibrance.
