EYES WIDE SHUT from The library of my soul, United Kingdom

A photograph that has it all. The drama and beauty of the windswept looking tree, glorious weather, and the fabulous shadow of the photographer. A really cool shot, Steve

DenisSm from Prague, Czech Republic

i am sorry Steve but i don`t like shadow of you here, as you didn`t call it autoportait :-). i would cut just above shadow. and upper half of picture i like...:-)

They are very interesting these trees that show the dominant wind in the landscape, Good shot with your shadow at the late afternoon.

Superb shot, lovely light and tones, the tree clearly formed into shape by the wind and yoru shadow excellent

Lesley from Lincoln, United States

I have to agree with DenisSm and say that I prefer this gorgeous shot without the shadow. I'd crop it just above the shadow. I love the lighting in the photo.

Terrific light and I especially like how the whole composition moves us from left to right up the hill. Well seen.

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

oh no, a trick question (:-)
great to meet you, or at least your shadow. With the tree and those large logs it's evident in this photo how powerful the forces of nature are.
