the reason this picture looks odd to me is not the photographers fault, but because of the type of trees they are. they are tall and skinny and it almost looks as though the image has been stretched verticaly (or shrunk horizontaly).

I still say leave alone. It's a great shot colours are fine. The darkend tree's work well. The hole shot works well together......

I like this one a lot:|

Hi Ken,

I really like the shadows at the base of the trees... I would love to see a few shots of those closer up. The sunlight behind the trees really does it for me. It makes them look mystical.

hi

thansk mate. unfortunately as i mentioned, i took this shto as i was waiting for someone. i didnt get any shots closer. but yea i did like the shadows so i tried to make them trail into the base of the frame.

i also like the sun light, im not sure if the sun was in another position if it would look better.



thanks for the comments mate

ken

Hello Ken, yes its a very nice shot, I also think that the trees are a little underexposed, did you use a wide angle lens ?

Ken,

I like this shot a lot. Could it have worked with a little lightening? Maybe so. But there is (as DJ mentioned) a mystical element to this photo, and the 'darkening' treatment that you applied seems (IMO) to add nicely to that. The only thing that I would have liked to have seen differently, would have been the people missing from the shot (but, of course, you couldn't help that :-)). Nonetheless...a great shot.

__________
Blessings,

Nate
