I've tried this "technique" for the first time to let the gold shine.

@SunTanScaMan The first photo seems a tiny bit overexposed, you could've been going for a different look, but that's what I see. The last pic is pretty sweet though.

 
He metered for the bark (or rather, the camera), which means the backlighting of the sun is going to be blown out, especially with a small-sensor compact camera. He could've metered for the overall scene but would've had to use fill flash for the bark details to show up. I don't really see the blown out background as an issue, though.

The first picture is definitely way overexposed haha. I was experimenting with manual mode on the camera with the first picture, and took a number of shots with varying degrees of exposure (see below) but the above had the most dreamy and unreal feel to it to me. The texture of bark look like a painting.
 

 

 
Got the camera as a gift, and it was me just breaking it in. It's definitely the best camera I've owned. It's a lot of fun!
