Tranquil Minds by MarcoHeisler Tranquil Minds by MarcoHeisler

I think this is was the most amazing light I saw in the recent time.
Only 1 mile away from my home, this wood with its trees and light
amazes and surprises me everytime I walk there.

More winter:

The same scenery in Summer/Autumn:

Vogtland, Saxony, Germany.

technical info:
Nikon D300 & Sigma10-20, RAW.
White balance, saturation, brightness & contrast edited in PS.

I am very grateful for every critique, comment & :+fav:. :)

Wow.... Where to start with this particular Photograph...
The colour looks just pure and very pretty. the images feels
homey some how. The snow on the ground with the orange from the sun rays looks like it's out of this world and very very beautiful... Pine tree's going off into the distance gives it like a forest kinda of effect to it the image.. Gosh I really do not know what to say about this but its get Breathtaking to look at.... Especially in Germany... Just a beautiful place and this photograph was shot in a beautiful place as well... Very well done :)

As I promised some time ago, that one of your pics was going to be in my first critique, so here I am mate.

First of all, I've always admired your work so much, you have an special talent for photography, there's lots of your photos are so amazing, that blow my mind to the stratosphere from how amazing they are. But this one it's particularly special for me, cos it's one of the first photos I found from you when I discovered your gallery, and one of the reasons why I joined to dA, cos I thought "I would love to comment in it" *chuckles* So I remember it fondly.

I must say, this is probably the most amazing and visually interesting winter sunset photography I've seen! All the panorama,the trees, the lights, the snow, and the sky have a lot of little details that it's amazing to see.

What it's the most awesome think about this photo, oh my! I think it's the splendorous orange light! :love: I's just so beautiful that takes your breath out, and gives you a warm feeling of happiness and calm in your heart :aww:
So even if it's winter photo, this light makes things feel so cozy!
It also looks a bit like a fantasy scene, it has a very mystic and enigmatic air on it.

Also,  I almost forget, "tranquil minds" it's an amazing title, cos it's precisely what it gives, a tranquil mind :)
