Richard from Duns, United Kingdom

Fabulous tones Ian (sorry about the extra i, yesterday!) I love the depth on this. For some reason it makes me think Japan.

@Richard: Thanks Richard!.....Re the Japan influence - it's probably those overhanging branches?

Valérie Simonnet from paris, France

Que c'est beau ces tonalités bleutées du premier plan.

@Valérie Simonnet: Thanks Valérie!

Mirko Herzner from Germany

Did you add some grain into this shot in processing? Really turns out nicely and further enhances the dark mood. So well composed...

@Mirko Herzner: I processed this one a while ago Mirko as it's an archive photo from last February but I think you must be right and I've added grain in during post processing.

Punit from Somewhere in, India

Nice one Ian. The grainy effect adds to the misty mood on the capture.
