Congrats on top ten. Maybe Sir Lancelot and King Arthur are off in the woods. :~)

So subtly gorgeous. I can't look at it and not see the trees gracefully swaying their branches and dancing. I don't remember seeing this when I was looking through the challenge earlier this week, not that I was voting anyway. I'm sure glad others took notice and put you in the top 10.

You made a great choice leaving they misty greyness rather than pushing up the contrast and making the trees darker, which is probably what I would have tried to begin with. That would have easily made this too cluttered.

Unreal but real. Delightful but subtle.

I love this effect.

Great capture! Wonderful shapes in there and the fog really makes this shot.

I love the tones. I sort of want a slightly closer in crop, start around 25% of the way up the photo to get rid of some of the lower trunks and really focus on the beautiful branches. Still, it's a very beautiful photo.

A shallower depth of field would have exaggerated the almost OOFness the mist causes and might have made it look a bit more mysterous.

Something very "other world" about it. Like I'm seeing a fairy tale come to life.

Wow. I'm in love :-) Marvelous capture of the feel of the place, without losing too much detail.

Oh how incredibly gorgeous! I want to be there, to stroll in the quiet and damp.

I don't know what to say... This photo is so mysterious, I'm almost stunned! I would've liked to see the ground, though. I'm finding it hard to believe that the ground would've ruined this photo.

Oh! Such wonderful atmosphere! What a place this is complimented perfectly by the soft and subtle tones. It's just a real pleasure to look at.
