About the Image(s)

"I had no thought of converting this into monochrome, however during processing I realised that as it was shot early in the morning with very less light around, the photo did not capture much of the color in nature. That's when I decided to convert this into monochrome and this was the result of it. I named this photo as a "Spooky Feeling".

This is a vvery original and creative use of darkness. The road in is (in myh opinion is too centered, I thin a crop of the left side removing the trees in the background might improve the photograph. Very nice work   Posted: 06/14/2021 14:55:42

I like how you captured the mist in this image. It really contributes to the mysterious feeling. The winding road is pleasing to my eye. Well done!   Posted: 06/14/2021 17:10:15

You have created a wonderfully spooky atmosphere. I keep looking into the mist and shadows and wonder what is waiting at the end of the road. The winding road and the trees that seem to disappear in the mist make a fine sense of depth, like walking right into the image.   Posted: 06/15/2021 15:21:34

Nice moody image I would add touch more light at the end of the path to draw you in and try to lose the light area in the sky as that draws the eye up, perhaps clone some branches over it.   Posted: 06/16/2021 03:40:47

Hi Vinod. First I think the title is perfect.

When I saw that the image at first I was prepared not to like it. However the more I look at it the more I do like it. The shadows of the early morning winter light and the hint (to my eye) of mist do give the image an eery quality almost like something from the Twilight Zone. The track leading into the distance adds another good dimension leaving me wondering what is out there in the distance.

I believe that eery quality was enhanced by your post processing and I think it would do well on a wall given the right setting.

My only suggestion might be to open up the shadows slightly, not much, but …

A very nice (to my eye) image Vinod - thank you for sharing it with us.   Posted: 06/22/2021 19:15:35

Hello Vinod. This is a very nice understated image, of a type which there are probably many right answers as to the best way to present!

I think you have done well. I would consider cropping a bit off the left to stop the path being as central and lead in lines are often better from near bottom left corner. Then I would see what you think of Colin's idea of cropping from the top to remove the sky. That might improve the feel with that bright area gone.

You've got a lovely arty image here. Well done.   Posted: 06/23/2021 12:44:49
