It is not the first time I have taken a picture of this motive. The symmetry and the debt are just fascinating. Where is it leading us to?

Light is very difficult because dark is really dark, and the light is really bright.

Very nicely done.

I like that you were able to find symmetry existing and that you did not have to set it up. I also think that the trees forming a canopy overhead and then making it appear to be a tunnel at the end is very effective as well. I also commend you for having details in the shadows while not blowing out the highlights. That is a difficult task, indeed, but you have done well here.

The only thing I would suggest would be a bit more contrast. Admittedly, the monitor I am on right now has a tendency to be a bit flat, but it just seems to be missing something to make it "pop." Also, there is a lot of little bitty details in there, and at this resolution, it can start to appear grainy. I have no doubt that a full size version, or even a large print of this would be awesome, but at this small size, it does look a bit grainy.

Nice work, and best to you in future challenges. If I can further clarify or explain myself, please let me know.

I know this is a personal preference but always when I see paths like this I want to take a picture of a person standing there and not of the path itself, can´t help but think that with this shot. Anyway a good photo, great tones in it and well exposed, taken during the right conditions/time of day too and the exposure is dead on. 7

Very beautiful shot. I love roads like this, and there certainly aren't any here in Japan. I would've moved up a bit more. The trees on the right are throwing things off balance to the trees on the left. The third tree up on the right seems like a good place to be. It's hard to tell that from there you wouldn't get the same thing happening on the other side. 7 from me.
