Some can be visually appealing, others not as much.

Very nice image. Symmetry occurs everywhere, do not fight it with "3-rds rule" - embrace it. Good luck.

Markku,

big thanks for all your recent, insightful and encouraging comments! Glad, you picked also this older for feedback, as it received some mixed comments but I also still like it.

cheers, Wolfgang

I like your spirit too -- keep on experimenting! :-)  I appreciate the boldness of the composition, Wolfgang.  I also like the slight 'echoed graphic effect' of the triangular indentations on the birch's bark & that of the evergreens beyond...

Many thanks for your comments! Yes, this is a bit off mainstream but I like to experiment every now and then - and instead of simply taking "depicting" landscape photos I try to find abstractions, correlations and patterns which might not be too obvious.

Well, and sometimes it works and sometimes not :-)

cheers, Wolfgang

Wolfgang, I like your spirit.  That's where really great landscape photos come from.

I like the composition very much; the division of the two sides by the birch trunk and the group of trees on either side - it's as if the birch is standing in as referee. Lovely image and great eye to see it! Thank you for sharing. :)

Trisha,

many thanks - I'm happy about your comment, because it's the first since ages to this photo and of course, because positive and shows that my idea at least worked to some extent!

Wolfgang,

I must confess having been looking at this gem loooong time ago, but now it's time to applaud for this one.

Sometimes symmetries... ...simply occur.
