When I saw this I instantly thought it was a manipulation since the scene itself doesn't land far from perfect. Sure we have a lot of processing here but that aside you can't look down on the actual composition here that's just great.

After viewing it for a while I still can't decide upon if this is what it appears to be or not. I won't dwell into it more, instead I'll accept for what it is and by the impact it had on me.

To say something is perfect is a bold statement and a word that you should use carefully, so I wont. What I will say instead is that this work is professionally composed, in all aspects and by far one of the most beautiful things I've seen in a long long time.

Fantastic work and a truly amazing view

4/5 due to I'm not 100 on the authencity, great work still!

This is such an icredibly beautiful shot. I am in awe :)
It's imperative that I say that you have created one agreeably mind-blowing work of art .The concept you have put into effect is undeniably fan-bloody-tastic. The quality of this artwork makes it apparent that you worked hard on this with your undiluted expanse of powers. The fore-shortening of this artwork is obviously conforming for the symbolism that I sense you are struggling to capture, but in hindsight this comment is certainly futile. Despite that, I contemplate that your use of colour could have been a lot better as I think that it wasn't able to match the quality observable in the remainder of the art work. To conclude I would like to reassure you that it has been a pleasure to write this comment for you and I hope it will inspire you to refine your creation.

The warm orange and gold tones of this magical forest capture invoke the feel of a warm autumn day. There is the feel that we have taken a casual stroll through the forest and have stopped in our tracks as we spot this stag standing among the trees.  It is a moment that one dares not breathe because to do so risks disturbing the breathtaking scene before us by startling the deer that it may choose to leave and disappear into the forest. Beautiful capture!

Mieszkam na Śląsku i nigdy nie widziałam takich widoków. No, ale dzięki Panu to wiem, że można znaleźć :) tylko poszukać trzeba. Wiem, ze może upierdliwe pytanie, ale czy można wiedzieć w jakim mieście? Do ulubionych oczywiście.

Third comment, I apologize...I think this is what I have been looking for...I was looking for a forest and I can't explain it, I think this is the right one to give me inspiration for my novel.
Xelestial Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Also, I wonder was anything done to this other than some potential cleaning up or straight shot from camera?
shade-pl Featured By Owner Jun 27, 2012
Hi, I appreciate that you like it. Yes, this is conceptual photo.
I took photo and I have done some improvements to create my vison.
One day, I had dream about similar forest and I decide to realize it on this digital art project.

thank you for your comment
