A path through birch trees in Acadia

Technical Details

60mm f/13 .4 sec iso 100

Nice work here Mario! The path provides a warm invite to carry forward. The aspens greet you and encourage you to proceed. They seem jubilant to have a friendly visitor.

May I suggest cropping off the sky up top so that the focus is on the path and the trees?

Excellent ICM! I like that the path is somewhat recognizable among the birch trees and the motion in the birch is pleasing and just right.

I would agree about cropping out the sky; it’s not adding and actually distracting from the overall presentation.

I quite like this ICM. Well done Mario!

Mario, Love the image. Very nice blend of detail and ICM. I think I agree with the crop suggestion. For me it would add a bit of mystery about the path. The blend of colors is also very nicely captured.

I am trying to learn ICM and this will be one of my go to examples of how to do it well.
