I kept looking at this one and found the odd, almost funny factor: while the trees are naked towards their crowns, the poor man is naked towards the earth. A beautiful shot anyway

surreal image !
good choice on the muted greens on the grass, or was it that way ?
wonderful hard contrast on the naked tree branches

wish the person on the path was a bit closer

Voted earlier coming back to comment.

The light on the trees really draws the eye in. It makes them beautiful, mysterious, and creepy all at the same time. I didn't notice the person til later - they are very much swallowed by the towering trees. I'm guessing that is the point of the art piece. If correct it accomplishes that. However I'm wondering if a slight closer crop would improve the visual impact of the piece even more. I suggest that you crop to where the dirt trail takes that right turn and have that in the bottom left corner of your composition. You would still have those fabulous towering trees but you would now have the dirt trail act as a leading line that leads the eye to that person tracking through the woods.

Love the scale of this, and the light makes those trees quite extraordinary. Reminds me of a Wizard of Oz-type magical forest.

This is taken out of a child's book and plopped right onto my screen. Lovely.

Didn't notice the walker at first - your title makes me think of the Wizard of Oz - those trees look like they could come alive.
