I wish the s-curve was a stronger element in the composition.

One of my top three in the challenge love the misty background and how the elongated s curve is accentuated to a shorter one by the growth on the tree. Great job and good luck

I like the foggy atmosphere, and the moss is fun. The 'S' you've chosen isn't much of a leading line IMO, which is how I think this challenge is meant to be pursued. JMO of course. :) Good luck in the challenge.

This is a different take on the theme, the shot is composed pretty well and the misty background help to give it a nice atmosphere.

Nice picture, how'd you choose which challenge to put it in lol, suits soft focus just as easily.

I know the reason for the branch in the foreground - the assignment - but I woud love this shot without that distraction. The background is beautiful!
