The stronger the wind the stronger the tree

    The last from this series. It's also my Xmas tree here at flickr. Dec 25th reminds me the sudden passing of a close relative a few years ago.
    I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
    Drive carefully.

      Technical: 8
      I like the wide dof, trees in the background and in the foreground are sharp and visible. The B&W is good except for a very light green color that annoying me

      Composition: 7 the left side is clear and the right one is dark : I think it unbalances a bit the picture. I like the opposition between clear background and the dark foreground

      Impact: 8
      A great impact : the viewer seems to be inside the dark heart of the forest looking at the clearer border,

      Commercial Viability: 8
      Fine art

      Looks good, only lost a point because I cant view it at a larger size.

      Composition: 8
      Doesn't really obey standard classical compositional theory (strong foreground etc) but it just works really well. I like the gradient of light to dark from left to right.

      Impact: 9
      So atmospheric. Beautiful ethereal feel to this.

      Commercial Viability: 8
      Could see this as being a poster for a film . Something that tries to convey atmosphere. Excellent image, well done.

      This image is very human... together with the title becomes very philosophical too...

      I just came accross this image and I can look at it for hours now... Not fair, I should be productive and working hard! :) But there is so much in this picture I want to keep looking. There is so much pureness and truth in it.

      I really like your pictures of trees. Very poetic. With something rarefied about them.

      love the sharp of those trees that create with fog a nice harmony in the composition, really, this captures the spirit of the forest in all its damp glory...
