  1. I like this photo a lot!

    It's a great location with the diverging, meandering, pathway through the woods. Good contrast too between the pathway and the darker vegetation/trees. The result is a n interesting 'strong line' that draws me i9nto the photo and gives it a sense of depth.

    I also like the 'judicious' and creative use of a fisheye lens in this location and from this viewpoint. The curved trees left and right provide a nice frame. I liked the photo before even noticing that it was taken with a fish-eye.:).

  2. This is lovely! I agree the fisheye effect, something I'm not a huge fan of, works very well here. Love it in monochrome.

    Didn't read the comments above (always try very hard never to do that) - my first impression on looking at this Photograph was,

    "Wow - Fish-eye lenses are so difficult to use well: this one nailed it."

    Bravo/ Brava

  4. I have taken many similar photos (w/o a fisheye) but you made it yours :) well done.

  5. I agree with the above. The fisheye can be so overused, but here its like the rug in the Big Lebowski, it pulls the photo together and adds interest to the organic feel of the trees and the pathways.

  6. It almost reminds me of the time I popped out of my mother’s womb. May I suggest moving the Clarity slider to the left
  7. Tilt it a little to the left and add contrast to make the walkway "pop".
  8. :D
