I really like the lighting in this shot, but I'm not really crazy about the border. 7

dramatic picture made so by good lighting and unconventional composition.

I like the idea of this picture but I don't like how the light is pointed. Whether you could help it or not, it seems to me that the light would've been better pointed up just a little more, maybe giving us a little more trees and a little less sidewalk.

I like this very much. The misty light is very moody and the large old trees are lovely. Nice job!

Love the color. It seems almost as though a miracle or a really bright fire is happening beyond the trees. It makes me want to peek around the corner.

This has a great atmosphere and mood to it. I'm tempted to feel that the light is a little too extreme/harsh to be ambient and so it doesnt feel as soft as I would have liked, but I like the gradient of dark to light. Composition is good, the trees seem nicely sharp, and the shadows falling across the path is a nice touch too. Very nicely shot.

This photo conveys a beautiful mood, calm yet slightly menacing. What is the light source behind those trees?

Quite beautiful.

Nice, I like the spooky effect. The light color is very interesting. There's a motivational saying somewhere just waiting to be stamped to the bottom of this photo. It also looks like a scene out of a movie, that's why I like it, I'm half expecting a good story if I could just see it in video, there's something interesting in these woods isn't there, and something's gonna happen on that path. Composition is slightly non-standard which works for me.

I really like the eeriness of this image. Shadows are great as is the composition. Not sure about the orange lighting, I may have tried using a different white balance setting, if possible. Nice work.

Beautiful! I love the subtle mood this picture creates. The colors are very warm which adds a nice contrast to what looks to be snow on the ground. Nice lighting from behind.

Nice shot. I think the it's just a little bit soft. Still it's intriguing to look at and has a very good feeling. Nice work, good dof.
