MAGICAL FOREST

By Imagephotographics
Morning everyone !

Thank you for your comments on yesterday's up-load.

Took this image Sunday afternoon locally, went into the forest to see if I could find some of those lovely mushroooms to photograph, but did'nt see any at all. On our way back, took some shots, and liked this one, played about a bit with the tones, hope you like it ?

Chris

I like the this, perhaps a strong focal point is needed though such as a person walking, I might be tempted to copy someone in from another image. I might also do a feathered selection around the outsides of the image and invert it before darkening it a touch. I think the atmosphere you have captured is effective but this slight treatment would emphasize it further...?

A bit like my recent upload too but you seem to have more leaves there which is a bonus for ground detail Smile

Beautiful image, certainly has that magical feel to it, great work.

Thanks for your comment - I actually waited for people to move out of the shot, as I wanted to show the long walk into the light at the end. We all see & think of things differently I suppose.

This has a slightly foreboding feel to it, is some mystical creature going to leap out at us? But then I'm weird like that!Wink I really enjoy the long view through and the beautiful tones. Nicely created image.
