Through the wood

By alansdottir  
Walking down a track past this little wood and saw a clear line straight through to the single tree at the other side. With the frost and the encroaching mist, it was just wonderful. Hope I've shown you some of that!

Thanks for looking - your feedback is always appreciated! Smile

Tech stuff: ISO 200; shutter 1/58 sec; aperture f/8; focal length 20 mm (tripod)
And I found another setting on my camera which seems to use some kind of software magic to increase the effective megapixel from the actual 6 to 12. It does seem sharper...

V1 for me. The strength of the composition depends on the dark contrast of the foreground trunks, and the sense of depth and distance created by the light beyond, and both seem to come across more effectively in colour.

Brilliant shot, beautiful composition. I prefer V1, because of the contrast between the frost, and the brown bark of the tree. But both V1 and V2 are great.

The colour is great, but I almost resent the way it distracts my eye from those wonderfully wispy branches!
Both excellent.

Awsome capture! I prefer V1, but it is great in mono, too.

V1 for me, its subdued anyway and near monotone, Looks longer than a 20mm , whatever it is, its a nice viewpoint and theres that magic frost on the branches,

Phil - I've not done accurate math, but 20 mm focal length on my S7000 is about equivalent to 100 mm on a 35 mm camera... It's misleading, I agree... Smile

Beautiful shot with a wonderful sense of depth. I prefer the subtle tones and colours of V1.

Beautifully simple image at first glance, but the more you look at it the more complex it becomes, definately V1 for me. Nice one Carol Smile

Your patience has been wonderfully rewarded with this result. So many different colours and textures in the varied tree barks, depth courtesy of the thin mist, uprights and blocked vistas, and that solitary pine, perfectly framed in the centre. Of course V1.

It almost looks like something from another planet. This has been so well planned and is a lot more than a snapshot. They both look like mono verssions but the thing that makes it for me is that single tree in the back centre.. That just stops us going out of the image at the far side. It keeps our attention in and lets us explore the remainder.

Smashing! The contrast between the dark trunks and the frost above and below is excellent. Well seen.

Like the delicate frost on the branches and the slight glimpse of the clearing/scenery beyond the trees.Makes me curious as to what's on the other side.Has a magical mysterious feel to this.Like both versions...version 1 feels more magical in a friendly way,V2 just feels slightly more atmospheric/mysterious more unusual in feel.

Nearly missed these, glad I didn't. I like both but you know which one I like best. I like the shapes of the trunks and the one complete tree at the back.
trees glorious trees, nice shot, very cool

Great winter scene Carol but v1 for me as the colour gives more sense of a cold feeling
