    The sky in this one is so interesting...so cloudy on the left, but such a beautiful blue, with wispy clouds, on the right. It's like the highest point of the treetop is some sort of temporal dividing line. The rough road on the left meandering off into the distance, and the hint of some unknown red building behind the tree on the right*, gives me the feeling of mystery and/or desolation.


    (*or are those just red leaves?)

    Red leaves.
    It's a very ancient landscape. People have been living on it for over 4,000 years. Lots of burial mounds and standing stone.

    (I really have to figure out how to calibrate the colours on this monitor...it's making everything a bit too dark. A different monitor showed the red patch more readily as leaves.)

    Where is this place? Far from you?

    Looks dark to moi on my monitor ... the large and dark patch of trees in the center don't seem all that interesting to be capturing such a dominating presence of the photo ... any special significance to these trees?

    I like the foot path.

    Looks fine on my monitor.
    I find the trees very interesting - which is why I photographed them. Although it is largely to do with their relationship with the other elements in the image.

    The colours should be brightened up a bit more as I think its too dark.

    Check your monitor, it's way too dark.

    Monitor is fine and calibrated every week. It's more likely to be your monitor. When was the last time you calibrated yours?

    it's definitely not to dark on mine. I especially like the lines in this photo, the path, the v's from the trees and the clouds...

    The darker shadows under the trees, with the suggestion of some detail in them, is what makes the shot for me. A most intriguing photo, pregnant with possibilities - perhaps a little sinister even ......
