Dear All,

This is a simple shot of an alley of trees which gave me an impression of their protruding branches appearing as if these trees are possessing long "arms" and stretching them towards the sky - They are wide open?

It was sunny and day was busy with lot of traffic around, even you can see some cars through the inter-space between the stems of those trees.

Hope you like the mood.

Kind regards,

Hi Paras.

Perfect framing to aid and increase these reaching arms. The minimal light is sufficient to show detail and tone. The angle across the trees and path works well, neat work, well seen and taken tfs

Hi Paras,
An agreeable POV with a lovley road crossing diagonally and a beautiful tree line-up giving depth to the presentation. A very sharp and neat image nicely enclosed in this complimenting frame.
My best regards,

Excellent shot with incredible sharpness and saturated colors. The POV almost creates 3d feeling. Nice focus and DOF.

Looks like very old growth, I'm surprise the roots are not tearing up the sidewalk. Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras,

I like that scene with a nice contrast and light with the shadow,
Excellent tone of colors with great details,
I like the point of view too.

Well seen and captured. The strong colours and the branches create a nice composition.
