That's a nice one. Peaceful, quiet, well composed, subdued tonality... There is something Michael Kenna-esque in it.

Thanks  for viewing ;) >>> It took some time to line up the trees -- wanted to see each one but, have separation between each -- and keep the front tree dominant ... 60mm on the Hassy..

... 60mm on the Hassy..

Now I know why I see Michael Kenna in it... he shoots Hasselblad, and I think also the 60.  ;)

Michael was using a Rollei TLR I believe on his early UK images ...  I started with the the TLR and then Bronica > finally to the  ROllei SL 66 by 1979

I love the framing, how the trees give depth to this image.

Well done.

thanks -- I think a single lens/tripod really makes one work a image >> I do work a considerable long time on a potential  image.  I saw the depth  > just had to size the front to back & each side of the frame ..to keep the viewers eye in the shot.

Reminds me of Seurat's "Grande Jatte and Circus," but with the people gone home.

I agree with you, having just one prime lens makes you work more and often gives more satisfying results than zoom in/out and a click.
