I love it. It reminds me of home. Beautiful image. The detailing of the colouring is amazing ( the moss on the trees and on the ground and the red of the fallen leaves) The looming mist adds extra depth. I love how the path is off center and you're looking into the woods instead of down the path (like so many other photographs). I think that adds some professionalism to this piece, and a slight obscurity that makes it so captivating. I think that if maybe you had captured just a little bit more of the trees' height it would have pushed it further, but that is nothing to hold it back from being a phenomenal image. Well done.
I love the hazy appearance of this photograph! And how the leaves/ground stand out boldly; But yet they blend in very nicely with the surrounding environment.
The way the path is off centre is very good, it's always good to have things like this off centre and not stuck in the middle at all times. Love how the path is nice and sharp, it's so well defined! Sure you didn't sweep the path before hand? Only kidding.
It looks so three dimensional because of the way all the trees get smaller and smaller as they go further back. The over all tone is very calming and has a nice warm feeling with the fiery orange funning through this photograph.
To me, this picture suggests, at the same time, silence and murmurs. The trees seem to be fixed to the ground as if they had legs and the path, dodging subtly to the right, seems to deviate from its route to invite us to abandon it and enter the woods. The fog and faded colors contribute a lot for this image results (for me, of course) more sonorous than visual. And it's very beautiful.
