This narrow strip of road orned by the overhanging trees is reminiscent of many ill faithed childhoods. This sight is, at least to me, the epitome of abandonment and desolation.

Some areas seem out of focus which I think is due to condensation build up on the lens during the long exposure.

I love this. Incredibly magical. Would love to see it as a huge print.

It looks like the cloud was red in the BG. May be a good candidate for HDR? Still great image, nice composition.

Very moody atmosphere and neat backlighting and shadows in the foreground. Neat. I would say the sky has been burned a bit too much, as it looks a bit artificial up there, and I would have liked to see the detail in some of the branches.

Feels like one of the spooky scenes in The Shining, book by Stephen King, movie by Stanley Kubrick. Love it.
