This looks like trails in my neck of the woods. Great entry. Glad I was first to see and comment! It looks even better on my good PC. The contrast of the dark, the green and the trail.
you were robbed irishkell...IMHO!
I don't know if you've noticed in some of my comments, that I also love trees. This shot puzzles me in the "eyes" of the community. It has winding path all over the place. Great work Kell.
Thank you slr! This is one of my favorite places-only 20 minutes from home. I feel like I'm a world away when I stand here. I believe they are oak trees. Trees are another favorite subject for me to shoot.
Its perfect composition and content for the topic. Intimacy between the trail and where it goes. Live oaks?
Wow gfa! Ask and you shall receive! Thanks so much for your comments and suggestions. This is exactly what I'm here for. I learn from you all the time! :)
I agree you've done a good job with the exposure and the form a nice arch. For me, making the path a larger part of the image would help, I don't think you need all the tree tops and if stepping to the left side for some angle? A topic like foot paths makes one think scenery, but most images still need a little something extra for a spark even if it's not readily apparent. A bench, lamppost, a distant figure often sets 1 image apart from the others, but the placement can mean the difference between making the image or a distraction. Just a late thought, how many images this week could have benefitted from something like a backpack and walking stick carefully placed on the side of a path or next to a tree? You've got a nice scene, don't give up.
Thank you so much lenscap for your wonderful comment! I don't know why I'm not getting many comments. I would welcome any critiques at this point to see how I could have improved it. :)
I really, really like your take on this week's topic and don't quite understand why there are so few comments??? You obviously know your way with a camera just from the EXIF data, but the real proof is in the superior quality of your entry...it takes several minutes to load when I try to zoom in! Love the composition, tack sharp focus, beautiful colors and excellent crop job...and this isn't even Mangoes! Very well done in my book! Bravo!
Good use of manual mode on your camera with F22 to give clarity of depth through the photo. This can be a tough shot when you have light and shadows in same shot, but you did well. I like the framing of the path with the bowed trees too. Good luck
