Wow - excellent lighting! I love this shot! I can't lay my finger on it but something about the affect you captured strikes me as being a miniature - like a model. Very interesting.

I think the effect has something to do with the narrow depth of focus, but that is a guess based on an article I saw in a magazine.

The two forest pictures were nearly binned until I got a new monitor which revealed their potential.

Many thanks for the kind words.

Then I'm glad you got the new monitor, Keith! It looks like the woods we knew as the'Piney Woods in Knowsley because the ground is covered in needles and there was a distinctive pine smell. But now there's a motorway going through it. :( _Theolfa-

Awesome again. Damn, that texture is awesome. I open the picture in full and want to kick a football among the trees!

Theolfa and whoelius: Thanks for the comments. As the weather has been very uninspiring, I have been revisiting some previous shots and I am very glad you like them.
