    Maybe it's just me, but the way you focussed on the nearer logs makes my mind think you laid down twigs and took pics of those. I like how the photo looks, though.

    Twigs? Those don't look like twigs to me! I like the shot, but I think in this instance I personally would prefer a wider DOF.

    i like the strong contrasts and range of greys
    my only criticism is to move those logs more towards the middle ground and keep the foreground a wee bit more empty
    you know give the viewer a little space

    I really enjoy this photo. If it could be any wider and not so cropped I think I would enjoy it more.

    I like how you focused on the near and received the shadows under some of the wood.

    Nice shot. Maybe more DOF using hyperfocal and less foreground. But still nice.

    I like it a lot too :) Looks like it should be in a magazine for an article about trees.

    thank you everybody for taking your time to comment
    this photograph was shot with R2 red filter in not so sunny spring day using tripod
    those logs (twigs) covered river bed & weren't thinner than me
    so....
    i couldn't move them
    i couldn't step back (melting lake behind)
    i couldn't shot it wider (50mm lens)
    still i could use more dof
    pity

    lol I didn't mean to say you laid out twigs and shot those, but I think it was the DOF that makes my mind think they're small objects instead of large ones. I do like the photo

    I really like it. I like the contrast between the living and the dead. I feel like the horizon is slightly off, although I'm not positive about that (the trees seem to be tilting to the left slightly).

    I personally like the DOF, makes for a much more unique photo.
