Stages of decay, from the bold trees in the background, to the recently

fallen, and to the older remains in the foreground, something that I think is

part of the beauty of the Acadia park in Maine. Detail of a larger image. Do

you think there is too much here, or just enough, and do you have other

comments. Thanks for looking.

Old, B&W silver print effect with strong contrast. Very good, compared to the situation of this subject. The B&W version is much better then the color.

Bela, thank you for your appreciation of the silver print type tonality, which, as you infer, is better for this type of image than the rather muted color version. I was at water's edge for this one and not having much in the way of options to change the angle of view, I decided to go for the larger plan than trying close up views. It is a bit jumbled, but the contrast of the two dead trees and the upright verticals of the live forest trees was of a little interest.  I didn't pursue the subject matter enough and would go into the water on future such shoots as these types of scenes are always revealing to the more persistent or exploratory eye.

It is nothing wrong with the composition, in the contrary it is perfect. You shown as much as you supposed to show, to get the real scenery visible and enjoyable to the viewer. On a B&W the tonality is right too, as supposed to be in this case, having a lots of detail. How would you photodgap a jungle, to not look like a jungle ?! I like it as it is very much. Not a step forward, or  backward required.

I hope, you understand my poor English grammar.

Bela, thank you. Your English is also fine. My second language is French which I do not always communicate that well. Interesting experience was a trip to Estonia a few years ago and a short and not very convincing personal experience with the Finno-Ugric (Hungarian) based language of that country. We English speakers have a lot to learn of other languages.

Kedves egészségére!
