So as I said in my comment, this piece summed up for me is; deep, red and moody!
The square composition works incredibly well with the elements placed within it. That path that curves off to the left and winds back into view slightly, really is for me the symbolic pathway to a 'headache', perhaps after running around all day trying to get things done or metaphorically not being sure your following the right path in life.
Also, that incredibly deep atmosphere is so dramatic! It's such a clear photo too, not to grainy from the fog at all! The way that the light gets brighter at the top though, provides a nice contrast to the darkest tree areas, and even adds a mystical or magical feeling.
I love those leaves too, it's almost a like a fiery yet crunchy sea of lava against the lack ground, very very attractive to the eye and providing yet another contrast, between the texture of so many sharp leaves and the smooth glowing fog.
Some brilliant photography/editing work has gone into this, I really do love it, it all works so well together and is far more than a randomly taken shot, there's so many artistic techniques that work together to make it successful. The only thing I would be tempted to change, would be to remove some of the smaller background elements from the foggy areas, just to add an ultra smooth effect, and prevent any distraction from the areas you really want people looking at, like the leaves etc,. Of course, this is personal choice and some people prefer to leave their photos largely untouched, and congrats on positioning things so well without it
hi popoks - red always means war.... passion...high blood pressure... but really I want to ask - how you posted the Do not copy line on your page.... is there a certain box for it? I'm brand new and still pretty confused... thanks
thanks Donald.. now I have to learn to read it... maybe you know another one too... I was trying to look for help on uploading more than one photo at a time - like a whole gallery subsection - 20 pics maybe... and can only find folks who opened 20 browser tabs or something and did it that way - seems awful neanderthal to have to re-enter sharing code and areas all the time... I try to keep my forest blue. thanks
i just looked at premium membership plans - it's a possibility - you'd think they'd at least list it with a check mark - as an option or good reason to get the premium service... it must be a pain for so many people.. I have visited here a lot because of links from facebook friends..... and it seems a lot of pro photographers and artists use this site..... even fb passed by that 5 photo platform a year ago... it seems strange.. then do you know where I might look for the function to be apparent? (too many questions? I'll send you a couple of bugs for lunch!!)
To all your question,i will just say,DA is a fun place,you can upload pictures(no limit) but of course one by one,it's not like flickr,but its kind of fun,. And anyway,if u still confused then u have to read Help & FAQ ,because i don't want to give you some more wrong infos..
