[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Further to previous postings of the same spot at Dewerstone on Dartmoor. I found this lurking unused in my archives and thought i'd share it. I think maybe the tree is too centrally placed perhaps?

i have increased saturation a little as the fog subdued the colours a bit.

any thoughts or comments welcome as always

Hi Paul,
This is wonderful! I like this foggy atmosphere with those lovely colors. Excellent composition with very good details, POV and DOF. Purple flowers are very nice. This is really well done.

Wow Paul! I like this A LOT! Excellent atmosphere with the fog. Interesting subject and nice colours throught. The flowers in the grass are beautiful. I'm surprised this hasnt received more attention than it has. This is a great shot but it can be even better with just a few small tweaks. Please see my workshop.

Hi Paul,
Great shot - wonderful atmospheric scene, what a lovely wood and very well captured!
For what it's worth, I like the (nearly) central positioning of the tree, it works well adding a nice contrasting element to the soft foggy colours. Rule of thirds can be way too prescriptive!
Thanks, Doug

Very beautiful atmosphere... and beautiful colour! The thin fog is great!!
Thanks, Enrico.

Hi Paul!
Great image!
I really like the colours and the light here! The place looks like from a dream. Well done!


Very beautiful. I especially like the diagonal ground and the misty look. I have a bluebell wood near me and have tried to get this sort of shot before, but not got anything as successful as this. Well done.
