This is the shot I took before my 'Deep in Neldoreth' picture. Back then I couldn't decide which one to upload but now I might as well upload this one too because I like it just as much. Hope you like it too
A stunning picture, I absolutely love it. It makes the viewer just want to see what's after that path, what you can find. This is the kind of scenery I have always been looking for, unfortunately it is very hard to find here in sweden... where is this? Very spectacular!
Anyway. The colors are absolutely perfect, I have nothing to say about the work with contrast. Actually I dont have that much of a critique for you, I just came here to say that this is awesome. The only thing I could say is quite important though, I think you should have placed the path in the very middle of the picture. It would have given it so much depth and if you think of it, if you try to crop just the path and all that I think you can see if for yourself. I almost think those buches on the left side is distracting
This is a outstanding fall photo. On the left side edge is a bush that could have been darkened a bit as the next bush is darker and draws your eye first. The photo starting with that bush leads your eyes to the tree trunks and then down the path very naturally. Also wonderful shading on those tree trunks and I like the look of height you achieved on the trees. Your colors are very nice. The end of the path ending in a foggy light adds that other worldly feel. I would be proud if I took this photo.
Haha, I didn't know Christopher Lee could sing.. I can hear his love for Tolkien's work by the way he sings it .. if you like my forest pictures then you should also check out *Nelleke if you haven't already, her pictures are amazing and many of them are in the same forest
Thanks for the hint, her photos are as good as yours
Christopher Lee is a passionate musician btw, he released a couple of albums in the last years, mostly power metal - that man is 91 and still doing metal- his last album was released this May, unfortunately it's absolutely not my music. But he sang for the Tolkien Ensemble on two of their albums, which i enjoyed. He was also the only one from the LOTR- or Hobbit cast to have met Tolkien.
