Hope you like it. welcome to all critiques and comments.

Bonjour Yan,
Ohlàlà... quel magnifique travail !
Cette lumière qui arrive du côté créée toute l'ambiance... peut être un tout petit peu moins lumineuse pour avoir l'impression d'être dans un sous-bois.
Bonne journée


Hello Yan,
A photo like a fairy tale... Perhaps much post-processing, but still it looks harmonious.
TFS & kind regards,


absolute stunning!
is like a fairy tale image, not a special one, but i think i coul immagine one about the boy lost in forest.
what tree is this?
congratulation and TFS.

Hi Yan,
This is a fantastic picture, I like the effect that you have created with the trees in the background, looks like a painting.

Beautiful light, green-golden light and simple compo.


This is a superb compo. Awesome greens and textures. The lighting is awesome too, it has an interesting ambience to it.

hi, great composition and pp work, you achieved a very interesting mood with the yellow green tones and the textures brought out nicely on the tree


Hi Yan
Stunning shot

Unbelieveble.... What a great piece of PP work!! If I read the note, it looks very simple... but it isn't!!

Great work, Yan!!


Nice idea, the effect is dreamy and definitely catching attention. The boy on the tree looks natural, the background is matching, too, but the leaves above, on the right, look bit artificial. I think it's the question of light.
