Wonderful pine tree forest. Like the black and white, the texture of the trees. Its is a very elegant image. You need to look at the larger image to fully appreciate this image. Thank you for sharing this.
Wonderful photo and a nice take on the subject. I think the low contrast look works well for this type of scene which helps it hold together as complete scene and leaves no particular element to dominate that scene. I agree that texture plays a very important role here but the starkness of the two trees in the foreground means that the composition is also significant, while not in any way overwhelming. It has a particular FEEL to it that so many landscape shots lack. It's not just a representation of what you SAW. It provides a sense of what there IS.
many thanks for your comments. I'm glad you appreciate this photo, as it surely does not call for attention.
Indeed, the large version has more 'presence' - PN has some limits when it comes to presenting photos.
@Fred: I love your concluding remark ("...FEEL...SAW...IS")!
