This is saturday's harvest - one of photos with mist and lighs theatre. Linden alley in Lodz's Botanical Garden - very special place for me. Imagine this place at hot summer - thousands of humming insects, especially bees collecting pollen from linden's flowers. Rays of light, air waving from hot and tranquillity and shadows under lindens. I like to walk this alley and be delighted by beauty of mother nature.
This picture was taken via fence. Unfortunatelly Botanic Garden is closed at winter season. Next opportunity to walk under lindens will be at the end of the march.

1/30, f8, iso 100, fence used as a tripod.

*Headless rider! Thank you for your words Pam - this is one of my favourite movies. Superbly filmed with mood and amazing, misty scenography. I'm proud that you mention it in note to my photo! I wish I could take photos like frames from this movie [or book].

This is terrific Grzegorz. Pam's comments are spot on. I think this place is magical just as it is - I don't think I want to see it in summertime. TFS, Janice

Fantastic mood to this image...extremely well composed and techically perfect. You have a real beauty here.

Chwała Bogu, że na zdjęciu nie ma żadnego człowieka, ani np. roweru, bo by się w ogóle nie nadawało do TN, a tak, proszę - aplauz przy otwartej kurtynie. :))) Poważnie - podoba mi się perspektywa i przelewające się światła.

Great shot Grzegorz, very good atmosphere.
It would have been better to have the trees a bit darker, and to go further to avoid the grass .

Grzegorz, Very good descriptive title for your shot. The overall effect is entrancing & moody!! TFS

This is simply amazing.
When I saw the miniature I was sure it's a photo of wild old forest.
When I saw who is the author I wasn't so sure anymore.
It's another great photo of shadow and light, but this time the atmosphere is more like horror movie than magic fairy-tale.
I think when you look at this photo you can't be really sure is it day or night (in front it looks like sunlight but the back is more moonlit).
I wonder what result would it be if you took this kind of photo in real wild forest - this one is really great although it's "just" a city park.

Great Grzegorz.
Agree with all the others, nothing to add.
Excellent work

Salut Grzegorz!
Très jolie photo.
Cela semble être un endroit paisible et accueillant avec ces chaises. Est-ce un étang dans le fond?
Nous avons également un Jardin Botanique à Montréal où je vais régulièrement dans les saisons moins eneigées.

Bella composicion... sólo es una lástima la aparición de los bancos y el cesto en la imagen.
Realicé un Workshop mostrando una alternativa a ello... espero te agrade.

Beautiful composition... only pity the appearance of the bench and the trash can in the image.
I made a Workshop showing an alternative it... I hope you like it

There is light at the end of the tunnel. Awesome image well portrayed here. very nice post. Good work

Thanks Grzegorz, another of those shots anybody would like to take. Very good work making nature the most important subject in this urban places. Congratulations.

Greg, this one is "tha bomb baby!" I think it's one of the best landscape on the site and you best one so far. Absolutely stunning. The depth perspective is amazing with the two cannels leading of at the back. Masterpiece! 10 points.

This is just splendid!
I cracked my eyes looking for Frodo, or maybe Gollum.
Lovely mood, the "tunnel" is very beautiful.
I love the backlighting on the remaining leaves.
Congrats on a beautiful picture!

If you keep on posting beauties like this, I'm going to move to Poland! Stunning work!

Very well done and thanks for posting

A stunning shot made possible by the filtered light, the regularity of the chairs and treeline, and the haze. Thanks for sharing this one.

This shot is wonderful, it reminds me of something out of Lord of the Rings, except for the benchs. I see you've cloned them out in a workshop! Wow are you good with a clone tool....I always make it look so obvious that I've doctored the photo! I had fun with this photo and will post a workshop later! Great mood created with this shot...I'd be proud to have this photo framed and hanging on my wall!

Lighting is just right which gives this picture character.

I woluld like to walk with you on this alley and don't make photos :-) !!!!

Great atmosphere in this photo, very well done.

Great shot Grzegorz, very good atmosphere.

You are very luky to be in this plase so beautiful.
But imagine this plase ant night?
Its just like a scarry movie.

Grzegorz, indeed, a very beautiful landscape. A poetic touch here. Very nice capture. An inviting and moody shot. Great shades and nice mixture of light and darkness.


I love this picture! The mood of the picture changes as you start in the darker trees and then move toward the light beaming through the trees further back in the photograph. It's also very symbolic because there's two paths that you can take at the end of the photograph. The shadows and the benches--everything is just wonderful. I see something different each time I look at it.

This is a great shot Greg,
The light coming through is spectacular, nicely composed shot
Thanks for posting

Every now and then when I log in I see an image that takes my breath away and I just have to critique it even though I'm supposed to be doing something else at the time. This is such a one. The light and mist make it magical. Great DOF and perspective. Love it :) Thank you Grzegorz

This is awesome! Technical, composition and emotion all excellent. My congratulations to you.

Magical light, I love the subtle colour shades. Straight from the fairy tales ... and into my favourites.

Faz muito tempo que não havia uma imagem com tanta perfeição.

Beautiful ahot! The light at the end and the rows of chairs at the side of the road make the shot a special one.
