This picture seems to be kinda antithetic to me. On the one hand I feel close to it, like walking in this forest, standing in the dark area, feeling the cold shadows on my skin and knowing I will reach the light area soon which will warm my skin and encourage me to continue my walk instead of turning around and leaving the forest. On the other hand the trees are somehow scary. They may contain monsters, that's what it looks like in this picture. This is a magical picture, Florian. As you may know, I do really like your forest pictures, because they contain so much magic. They have got a great feeling and atmosphere, and I bet you will take much more pictures! I do not have anything to criticize, so take this critique as a big big compliment! I love your work. Keep it up!
Did you know that the Brothers Grimm lived in the city of Kassel next to my hometown when they made their collection of fairy tales? Actually, a lot of their tales have their origin in traditional narratives of the region I live in. So this might be Hänsel and Gretel's forest for real, I just couldn't find the witch's cottage - I guess it has been eaten up by curious onlookers in the meantime.
