Splendid piece!

I have seen similar shots, and tried more than once to imitate them (with feeble success), and I both admire and envy your skill in both the take and the edit.

This by far excels what I have seen and felt in such a photograph. The perspective, detail, contrast. Seen by the eye (camera), enhanced by the imagination (the edit) evoke both fear and worship. The trees (so much like folk) might be desperate hands, reaching up from darkness to grasp at God, or they might be manifold prophets of fiery wrath leering down upon those who fear Him. Even the title is open to interpretation by the fearful and the bold. Doth God inquire of Adam through the trees, "What hast thou done?" or do the tongues of nations retort, "Why this Darkness in all Thy Light?"

However one may interpret, it is a powerful piece, and a powerful title!

Just wow, incredible how you created this picture!! These pure black & white contrasts and the not quiet touching tree tops, absolutely impressing work.
The perspecitve is somehow shifted, i like that too, a very good deviation.
Best regards :)

I tried to make something similar but I would like it that the branches will look like a river paths. I will try it again this summer.
But this is a nice pic anyway.

Hallo Peter;
Very pleasant music to enjoy even more an extraordinary picture, where you capture so well to show the forest pointing in the same direction.
It is a truly piece of art, thank you very much for sharing =)

Hello augenweide! Your work was featured in my recent journal, Obscurity. :love:

There are so many worm's-eye view shots of trees, but this one spoke out to
me. It's so well composed; I love the tree trunks' leading lines and how the
light and shadows fall. This image is so amazing!

garnicht so leicht eine baumgruppe zu finden
die sich in so einer symmetrie zusammenfügt, sehr schön!

sorry, dass ich dir in diesem fall wiedersprechen muss,
zumindest aus meiner ganz persönlichen erfahrung.
seit ich dieses bild hier -> [link] gemacht habe
habe ich immer wieder, wenn ich in der natur, bzw. wald, war versucht
das ganze mit ähnlichen und anderen zu wiederholen. und obwohl ich
mit der cam ständig auch "hans guck in die luft" spielte habe ich bis jetzt
nicht noch einmal so eine symmetrie gesehen, respektive einfangen können.
aber wie auch immer, vielleicht liegt es ja an mir. :)

aber ich sehe, du bist ebenfalls mit einem 10mm teil bestückt, - jedenfalls habe ich die beste erfahrung in älteren buchenwäldern gemacht, dort stehen die bäume in recht regelmäßigen abständen und lassen kaum unterwuchs zu...

Your work is striking this is indeed one og the best tree pictures I have ever seen. This is up there with that image Ansel Adams did of the white bark trees.
