Very nice picture. Well sharpenned and a good framing, but over all a fantastic atmosphere. Congratulation John !

I like your image a great deal. The lines are very strong, and truly make a sense purpose. On the other hand, the fog makes the destination so dreamy!
Great image!!

Hi John, prachtige herfstlaan, je voelt gewoon de atmosfeer, beetje vochtig, en fris. Mist kan zo fotogeniek zijn!
Mooie compositie, John.

Beautiful! The image is very sharp and the fog adds some great mystery!

Anothe beautiful imagine of this Autumn. Strong elements present: the double row of tall tress between a long path, the misty weather, the falling leaves, the solitude of the place. Great picture again, John

heerlijke foto John,
Aanmerkingen geen, deze is gewoon uit de juiste hoek genomen. Wel had ik die 2 donkere vlekjes rechts aan de zijkant er nog even afgecropt. Verder uitekende sfeer foto, erg goed werk.

i beleive you almost shot a dreamland...sensational composition....

Very similar moody to the previous, thought the trees meeting over the narrow path give an even more dramatic effect.

What a fantastic environment... I really like this one!
Very, very well composed and captured. One word: Strong.
One of my favorite, no doubt.

Immagine meravigliosa, anche meglio della precedente, molto suggestiva la stradine che finisce nella nebbia e le foglie per terra, un bel quadro d'autore!!

Fantastic mood and atmosphere in this photo John! Everything works perfectly good!

Very effectful John. The fog in between the alley works well and is essential for the overall impression. Good perspective, well done.

Le fait de photographier en utilisant le format RAW, gagne en qualité, quand bien même il est nécessaire de convertir le fichier en jpeg.
Ici, nous avons le droit à une composition de grande qualité photographique. Nous sommes bien en automne avec ces arbres dénudés laissant au sol des feuilles multicolores. Cette route nous mène tout droit à une sorte de tunnel inquiétant pris dans la brume.
Excellente photo John.

Hi John

Moody & very atmospheric with the fog. Good use of linear perspective & vanishing point to create depth in the composition.

Another fine photo with the elements from your previous post. These astonishing acurately lined trees, a misty background, nice foregroung with all these leaves. I like it.

Belles lignes, belle photo et grande profondeur qui nous mène au fond du chemin.
I Like very muche thiskind of photography you posted here.
T U for sharing

You are really offering us a full series of deep perspectives and infinite views into the fog, John. This one is particularly nice in that infinity starts fairly close, and still there is a lot of nice detail in the front. I like the way the small poles mimick the big trees.

Another effective piece of "autumn perspective", John. The mist is very well captured, and the fallen leaves on the ground are a quintessential detail to be included. Very good work.

You have well captured the infinity of this angle of vue , PARFAIt !

Another "wonderfull" one, John,
really great shot with the lines of the trees and the softness in this shot, very nice work from you !

Encore une de ces magnifiques vues que tu prends lors de tes ballades matinales. Le cadrage est parfait et l'ambiance bien rendue. Bien vu, John!

I'll never have enoygh of them, John. Excellent moody shot with perspective, with fog and very good POV. Very well composed and captured.

Another wonderful scenery. Amazing how the mist provides dynamics to the scene. Very well-lit and well-composed.

A clever and unique shot, John - having a background of fog. Of course, the atmosphere is excellent, as is the perspective along the path. Nice green shades in the bottom third of the shot. Well seen and captured.

Hi John
Hierdie is ongelooflik pragtig. Ek het ook na jou ander geky, en hulle kan op TN gepos word en sal waardeer word. ALsoluut pragtig met die mis en die "wat wag daarvoor?" admosfeer.

A special and fine version of the vanishing point shot - I like the way those lines disappear in the haze and mix of vertical and horizontal lines - thanks John - and congratulation with the fine work.

Nice and clear photo John, very moody morning, the lines of threes are very well presented, maybe a vertival presentation would have worked well also with these big tall trees, anyway, well done.

I always enjoy your photo John. No need to critique or say anything constructive. Just simply enjoying the view. You have a very lovely misty autumn view of a tree lined/avenue, with scattering of autumn leaves. Very well captured and enjoyable to see. Wish I was there, walking in this.

Effe tussenuit merk ik dat je blijft een dagelijkse foto hier neerzetten, heb er deze tussenuit gepikt naar mijn persoonlijke voorkeur voor natuur hier weer zeer mooi met die mist weergegeven en een perspectief eventjes uit het midden. Mooi John.

Deze blijven het doen. Je weet dat ik dit prachtig vind, ik kan er verder dan ook geen commentaar op geven. Heel mooi!

Great, the symmetry of the trees is phenomenal, I the fog adds a mistique and allows my imagination to ask where is this path leading, even fallen leaves look like carpet, add contrast with it's yellowish colour. Everything is so beautifull here.

wow, what a picture! I am a road biker too, and boy would I love to blaze that path. incredible depth, and I love the leaves on the ground.

Hi John,

A nice image of the cyclist path and of the trees under foggy condition, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Good afternoon John,
Marvelous depth through the trees boulevad and that's inspite the dense fog condition. A great ambient photo, my cong.'s.

Hello John,
This would make a perfect photo from "The Lord of the Rings" or such like! You can just imagine a fantastic character emerging from the cloud of fog at the bottom of the alley. As usual, you have a perfect perspective formed by the two rows of trees making a wonderful guard of honour for whoever wants to walk in that magnificent place.
Have a good weekend.
