First word to explain this: Awesome!

I really like how you made this picture, the angle in my opinion is very good. The light is pretty much amazing, especially because of this magical feeling that the trees in combination with the light give me. What i really love about your pictures is because in spite of that magical- fairy tale like -forest there is a road in the middle. I mean that's just amazing, if i'd imagine a road through a wonderful forest i think of traffic jams and loads of cars along with it, but this road just fits in perfectly!

I'm sorry my way of explaining may not be very clear, but i love the photo and i think its amazingly done :)

It's so very soft, wonderful use of light and dark. The balance is gorgeous, sunshafts and shadow alike. There is such tranquility in it that I think most viewers can appreciate greatly. The right hand half seems so bright and gives a strong source of light while the left has a softer, fading, shadow that really brings it all together - if not establishes an almost fairy tale setting of 'good and evil' and where those forces dwell. The road in the middle has a great sense of line, drawing the eye down into the center and not just following the sunshafts moving diagonally. There's definitely nothing stagnant about this piece, I think you caught it right during magic time!

Your technique is strong, it is very crisp, clean, and there's obviously no camera shake or the like.

Overall, I think this is very well done. If you say this isn't your best, then I think myself and others who like this should definitely check out your gallery because this is superb. Marvelous work!
