A magical path. This is so beautiful; plus great use of portrait format, it does what portrait should, it leads the eye gently up through the frame with no lateral distractions.
I have one minor quibble, I'd crop off the base of the tree at the top, I can't decide if it drags the eye away from the path or creates a resting place, but it makes the frame slightly top-heavy. But that's very minor.

You enter you walk
You twist you turn
You run you slide
you stick in the groove


Though no-one can go back and make a brand new start,
Anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending
.

From Thresholdswirl poem and quotations, and a beautiful illustration thereof by yourself, Helen.

I love it when an image just happens like that. Your composition is perfect, and the reflections are strong, but I love the way they pattern the distant part of the pathway.

Truly magical image - I love the yellow and the reflections and shapes of the paving.
Moira's observation is interesting but I think you certainly need to let the path taper to a fine end.

Great capture Helen, like how the path snakes it's way up and out at the top. The rain has provided some added interest too with the reflections Wink

Superb composition Helen - love the yellow/greenSmile reflection. I like the oval shape around the tree at the top it echo's the shape in the paving and leads nicely out of the image.
