[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took a lot of pictures when I made that walk in Germany last year (it was a long walk).
Most of them were pictures of landscapes with frost, because there was a lot of frost that day.
This was taken on the same day and I started my walk through this forest. No frost there, just on high parts of some branches and ofcourse on the open fields. What I liked about this part of my walk, were the path was covered with autumnleaves.

Hello Nel,
A good lead-in to your German forest!
I like this road covered with the remains from autumn, and the naked trees are just waiting for another season to start...
Strong atmosphere, well framed scenery!

Hello Nel,
Nice capture of a trail in the woods. The color cast is too cool. I think you need to tweak the WB, or use an 81-series filter.
Best wishes,

Magnífica composición y agradables detalles... genial trabajo, atmósfera otoñal, saludos Nel

I like the composition you chose here Nel. There is nothing like a road to lead the viewer into a scene. I do think the image is a little weak on values. Most all the image is in the mid tone range. I would try to increase the range in pp along with sharpening the foreground a little. I think if the foreground is sharper it feels more natural and the viewer is drawn in more easily.

Hello Nel,
I like this POV you had and this nice composition. Details are great too. I must say that colors are a bit uniform and you might maybe have added a little saturation? I’m not an expert in landscape as you know though : ) This is a very nice post of a beautiful place anyway with, as I said before, with excellent details. Well done! Thanks,

Hello Nelly !
This is a beautiful path, I love how it is covered with dead leaves. Naked trees and dark colors give the picture a real winter mood. beautiful composition and POV too. Very well done !
