I like this image a lot. It seems confused at first glance, but then I was taken by its mysterious atmosphere, almost like entering a secret and sacred place… And the scar in the ground adds reasons of concern… Really beautiful…

Hi Danny,

This scene looks really awesome. The composition seems great, and all the elements in the frame seem to work really well. The only thing I would personally recommend is to reduce the vignetting around the edges - while it does focus attention on the tree, I think right now it is a bit too strong and as the viewer, you can see where the background has been darkened versus where it was left at normal exposure.

Overall, great image!

I agree, this looks awesome. It’s as though a print on black velvet. I’m not sure why this hasn’t received more comments.

A very haunting image. I love it as it is and would not change a thing. Well done!
