Default Mysterious Winter Morning

The purpose of posting this photo is to show the viewer of the mood invoking power enhanced shadow and highlights give an image. Shadows move the viewer where the artist wants to lead them and in this image your drawn to the light where it's safe notwithstanding the mystery, danger and the unknown of the darkness.

This image was underexposed in pp to give tonal qualities to the shadows then the midrange and highlight dodge tool was used to enhance the light.

Hope you enjoy.

Lovely shot spy. Did you wait for that moment or just at the right place at the right time?

Thanks banksy and gabbyone! Banksy, I did not have to wait for this one as the sun was shinning through the trees as I was driving home. I just had to stop along the highway to take the shot is all. :0)

Simply stunning! I did see it on your webpage and thought it was beautiful. Wouldn't be surprised if you sell quite a few of this one.
