[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The magical hour when the night turns to dawn is a time of many delicate shades and colours. The world is so quiet and peaceful when the creatures of night already sleep and the children of sun are not yet awaken.

Here is a photo taken in Munti Bistritei, a chain in eastern Carpathians reaching 1859 meters asl in the highest parts, and borderiing the Bukovina region in Romania from the south.

Verrrry Transylvanian... you took this photo in the place where Bram Stoker places most of his "Dracula" tale, nearby the so called "Borgo Pass" in Bistrita, Romania... your image is nothing but fuel for the archtype of eerie landscapes from the tale, :) good job... I am from there, by the way !

Excellent composition, perfect exposure.
Great shot!

Hello Michal!
Lovely capture.DOF,POV,details and foggy BG are wonderful.TFS...:-)

Nice landscape with a lot of DEPTH !

Focus, DOF and exposure are very good.
But best of all is the composition. The tree on the left is you first plane of depth. Then you got the dark hill on the right (2nd plane) and the medium tone hill accross the diagonal (3rd plane). Followed by those trees in middle left (4th plane) and finally the sky (5th plane).
Early morning pictures and also rainy day pictures often show that effect and it's a good demonstration that the best time to take pictures is not always during the sunny day.
Nice landscape and TFS

Here were well expressed tonal and air perspective. In general, very calm mood, but in the same time here is felt some mystery.
Best wishes. Elena.
