Hi Marco!!!

This image with fantastic sunlight rendering, colors and composition. Image editing is optimal (IMO) - no overexposured or underexposed areas, which are so typical for backlight shots. Photo with well balanced contrast and saturation. No visual vignetting and CA, minimal visual noise and no lens/filters flares... Really well done.

For me (IMO) will be better to crop this photo a little (10 - 20 px)from the right and left sides - to remove the small vertical trunks fragments of the pines and slightly sharpen the grass - lower foreground part of this shot.

Once again - this is the amazing "forest" photo filled with light and color.

So Honestly, This is a great shot. The Exposure balance of the shot is very well done, no one part overexposed, or underexposed. I really like the timing of the shot, how you chose when the sun is shining through.
When I first saw the shot, I was thinking, wow what a peaceful environment. I would love to relax there or something. The trees give an added feeling of relaxation and the way you positioned the trees is really well done. I also like how there is a colour layering in the photo. you get the green grass, the brown tree trunks patterned with the orange and yellow of the sunlight, and then the darker green of the tree tops. I like how you got part of the top. i believe if you ignored the top part it wouldn't give the same feeling. i believe the image is balanced because of that. damnit this image is so peaceful

Kommst wohl eher aus Richtung Ruhrpott, hmmm? :D
Naja, man braucht schon die richtige Stelle wo das Licht schön einfallen kann,
und die richtige Tageszeit morgens oder abends. Und am Besten ein klein bisschen Nebel dazu.
Also ein bisschen Glück ist auf jeden Fall dabei.
Aber wenn man einmal weiß wann und wie's sein muss kann man das Glück maximieren. ;)
