Hi Kevin. Good, bad or indifferent, I like to reply to pics that move me in one way or another. While I think this photo is technically wonderful, PP, composition, etc.,I find I like it less than your other, more spectacular works. See what happens when you always give us your best??!

i think the middle area is dodged just a bit too much. all i see when i look at it is the mass of very bright intertwining twigs on the floor, so my eyes have trouble even seeing the birch trees.

Kevin, to be honest, this shot doesn't give anything to me.. I'm sorry, but I'm not sure about composition and the placement of the middle tree... the middle area is way to bright for me...

...just my 2 cents on this, but after seeing your stunning work in the other threads, this one can't compare to them

I had a feeling this was going to be one of those 'you either like it or you don't' photo. I struggled with it myself and tried to make it interesting. It has been one of those photos I've kept going back to. Some days I liked it and other times it got filed away....far away.

Oh well, on to the next :0)

I think you touched on what the magic of it is...

One of my favorite paintings is Alex Colville http://ptkostyack.files.wordpress.co...olville_04.jpg

the horse is all wrong plus some other things.....but the emotion it brings up...is what's cool about it...

Yes, there are some things wrong to each viewer, ...some different than others but that is the beauty of art. You know it passed in the creators mind, maybe the artist struggled with it but as with most art, it conveys what the artist is feeling at the time.

I think that's the most important thing! Some people like your shot, some not... if you as the artist are satisifed with it, if it turned out just the way you wanted, then the mission was successful......... just my 2 cents
