Hi Paul

This photo demonstrates that you have a good idea of the importance of lighting in a landscape. I love the slanted yellow sunbeams & superb sharpness & shadow detail. Have a nice week!

What a beautiful scene you have captured here, Paul!

Great details and perfect clarity where the strong sun-rays piercing through the green cover make this work so appealing. The light and contrasts within the location are amazing.
The POV and DOF are excellent, and the movement in water gives certain depth into the scene.

Well caught moment in which one can feel the RAW beauty of Nature!

Kind regards,

Hi Paul,
Lovely shot,the warm beams cutting through the green canopy are delightful,nice processing.

Hi Paul, really nice light with the early rays filtering through the trees. Looks like a nice spot to sit and listen to the birds. Fiona

Hi Paul, a beautiful capture of this lovely sunrise in the woods. The beams are just exxellent coming through the greenery. - The calm meandering water complements the whole scene.
Fiona is right - I have the feeling to hear the chirping of birds too .....
Very well done - kind regards Monika
