Dear All,

A long walk in the forest is more than a joy one can get. The beauty of natural forests is a delight for the eyes and it was indeed an artist's mood when seen a person walking on a thoroughfare in the forest.

The mood (in reality) was stronger than the one you can see in this picture.

Thanks for stopping by.

Kind regards,

Full of mood. Good B/W choice of this good composition---impressive long trees...( man helps a lot to see the size).
um abraço

Ciao Paras, fascinating B&W composition, great perspective, magic atmosphere, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Paras, a good idea to present this in b/w, it has more impact especially with the figure in a dark coat, appearing like a silhouette.
I like all the textures of the trees and the fallen leaves.
Tfs, regards Jean.

P.S. Thank you for your greetings.Happy new year!

Hi Paras.

I do like these moody shots, ones that make your mind start to wander and wonder. Beautiful tones shown and track leading off into the distance.

Best wishes for 2013.

Stv ;0))

Beautiful country scene! This reminds me of a play "A Walk In The Woods" by Lee Blessing. I like the effect haze on the mood. Great pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Hi Paras...very nice shot...well composed with a nice mood. Good tonal range.


Nice sense of drama and atmosphere in this shot Paras enhanced by the B&W

Hi Paras, looks quite nice in b&w but I think it probably more alive in Autumn colours.Fiona

Hi Paras,
I like this POV where you created a deep perspective. The inclusion of the human figure is increasing interest! The black and white conversion renders this a classical presentation.
Nice contrasts while maintaining lively the grey tones. Good square frame.
My best wishes for the New Year.

Hi Paras
I love the sense of scale, the contrast, the diffuse light and the classic monochrome. Excellent.
Congrats, and my wishes of a great year of 2013.

merveilleuse image NB quelle perspective quelles lingées d'arbres avec le tapis de feuilles et ce personnage en noir grandiose.
Bravo et amitié

The perspective and the height of trees relative to the size of the individual mid distance makes for a very interesting shot.
