  1. My kind of Christmas tree. ;-)

  2. And the dew provides the twinkling lights!

    I am sure in the club world this would be slated with comments like, what is the subject, nothing to rest the eye upon whereas I view it as a whole and admire it for its evocativeness. I can sense the cool damp air, this looks like a golden hour shot.

  3. A good use of a blurred foreground (my hobby horse, remember), and great atmosphere.

    Despite Rex’s comment, I am left a bit defocused though. I probably rest most readily on the web towards the right. Although a resting point for the eye isn’t essential in a photo the lack of one in this otherwise restful photo is a bit jarring.

  4. This may be more impressive seen large but here the dew drops are a bit too insubstantial to convey much of the foggy atmosphere. I’m not particularly unsettled by anything but am left feeling a bit cheated that I’m not seeing more: does the lowish viewpoint sacrifice some information through the soft focus foreground? There is a good feel for the general vegetation though.

  5. subjects for me are small shrub up front and centre with the one on the edge of frame right and left (blurry) back giving this one balance and company.

    Calming to look at and I appreciate it for that.

  6. Like John, I don’t get the sense of foggy. Rather more a sense of clearing frost for me.
    The main tree seems like a prairie dog keeping a watchful eye.
    Overall, though, at this angle of view I’m not sure if I should be looking wider or closer. I don’t quite get enough of the sense of the setting, nor does it really feel like a picture of the tree and the dew laden vegetation around it.

  7. While the web “catches” me first, the zig-zagging line moves me effectivly through to the mysterious fog behind. The cool, moist mystery of the shot is very pleasing.

  8. The deliberate use of DOF here forces me to look in the middle for detail. I’m left wondering what thos two black ‘dots’ are off on the left of the in-focus band. The foreground and background compliment each other well and the additional bit of ‘sky’ in the back gives this an airy appearence which is good in my eyes given the narrow band of sharpness.

  9. Hmm, I think the in focus shrub disrupts the textures, which for me are the interesting subject.
