I never got to this shot while voting .. how fascinating - a perfect range of tone and such a sense of mystery that one could spend hours coming up with a plot to suit this wonderful photo - I would pick a scary mystery plot. Congratulations!

Almost forgot to vote on this...nice.

This is pretty. It's like a painterly Ben shot. The blur looks like it was brushed in. So beautiful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2011 10:12:54 PM
Just lovely! Great tone and degree of blur. This really captures the "feel" of being in the woods, which in my experience is hard to do. I'll be interested to find out what camera settings etc you used.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/21/2011 07:44:17 AM
Lovely painting like effect. I wish I could capture images like these.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/20/2011 12:31:17 PM
Again, this is a great rendition of Ben's 'Thoreau' style of image. But leaving aside the challenge topic it's such a great image anyway. I't's in my top five favourites. 10

Ben does Blair Witch Project...? Gritty and deliciously textural.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/20/2011 04:18:23 AM
Gorgeous. You rendered this with beautifully, resulting in rich texture. 9

Beautiful fairytale landscape.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/18/2011 04:31:57 AM
In the manner of Turner, shot in B&W. It surely is a compliment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2011 10:49:32 PM
regardless of the challenge, I love the name and the picture- ominous, devilishly dark- I would have thought the title if you didn't tell me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2011 08:36:45 PM
very beautiful blur... and tones... excellent image and very Ben-ish!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2011 07:47:51 PM
Soothing and calm - a lovely black and white painting!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2011 01:12:40 AM
I feel this is someone I know or someone I don't really know. in the bottom there is a bloober fish pretending to be a tree trunk. definitely taken with a charcoal filtre and printed on toothsome paper. I'm sorry - "I'm sorry" is my very own favourite comment - but this is only a dream of Ben.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2011 01:00:18 AM
wonderful rendition of Ben's rendition of Turner

I love this. Great photo and very spurgeonesk I think.

07/16/2011 01:17:08 PM
I voted on this one yesterday and last night I had a dream that included finding a woodsprite, lol. Not sure if that came from this suggestion. I like the dreamy affect of this. (voted earlier)

Now this is real Ben material.

So bleak and impenetrable, yet I can't recover from its magic.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/15/2011 02:21:04 PM
I don't think of Ben as having that squiggly blur and then Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_949004.jpg there it is. I really like this and am coming back to comment. 7
