Birch copse after the mist

    Continung the the theme of the previous image, a similar birch copse just round the corner from the other, this time after the mist had lifted. The quiet stillness and muted palette was the attraction to me here. What you won't be able to see unless you go large are the thousands of tiny water droplets hanging from the branches.

      Lovely image Joe - I really like how you composed this side to side. It has a very pleasing quality - the balance of close and far trees works so well. Viewing in large in lightbox definetly brings out the best. Cheers.

      Agree with David above. Lovely softness to the scene but full of sharp detail.

      Absolutely beautiful Joe, the soft and restricted colour palette is really appealing.

      Seriously nice Joe, a very refined composition and lovely sobre light.

      Very good Joe, each tree looks to have its own space within the frame, a very pleasing simplicity about it.

      Lovely muted palette and mood with excellent separation between the tree trunks Joe. Viewpoint choice must have taken a while!

      I tried scrolling up to crop out the sky part and found that to my eyes, this simplified things and seemed to enhance the presence of the tree trunks.

      Joe, the spacing between the pairs of Birches is very effective. I would agree with Baxter's comment about the crop but would leave just a touch of sky to lend the image an airy feel.

      Suitably subtle colour which renders the scene perfectly

      Immaculate. Very nice shot indeed. The detail is excellent, but the overall look of this really grabs my attention.

      Lovely when viewed large. I have to agree with Baxter about the sky crop. Would have been nice with some Astia ;o)

      Thanks for the thoughts on the crop suggestions, the original was me attempting a vista! Now tweaked with just that little hint of sky retained, didn't go too tight as it seemed to kill the depth and stop the attention at the first set of trunks...

      Simple but so effective. A beautifully-executed bit of work, Joe.

      Nice shot Joe. Shame about the black tree in the back..

      Like this one Joe. Loads of eye-popping detail, and the composition is pleasing, perhaps because of rather than in spite of the 'black tree'.
