This was taken four weeks ago today (date in EXIF is off) in Tall Trees Grove in Redwoods National Park. It's a somewhat-difficult reverse hike -- about 5-mile roundtrip and a reverse hike. You drop about 900 feet down into the grove at the beginning and then have to climb it on the way out. It's worth it to be in a secluded area with not many people.

Felt B&W was the right treatment for this.

Really nice image, that makes for a nice story.
This is very nice as it is- but if it is going to print a couple of little niggles. Walk the edges- there are a couple of bright spots and leaves that will detract in print.
Think about adding a little light to the person- or not.
Nice art.

Love the composition and agree with others that the B/W works on this. I also had pretty much the same thoughts on potential tweaks that Gary articulated.

I like this a lot. Really gives the feeling of being there and I agree re the mono. Nice!
Thank you, Ron!
Simply stunning!
Thanks, Nick!
An exceptional image for all the obvious reasons.
Thanks, Mike!
Marvellous mood, Doc!
And agreed about the b&w.
Thanks, Bart!
This is wonderful!
Thank you, Terri!
Excellent. I really like the composition.
Thanks, Jim! Took some playing to find the right zoom and not show too much/little of the trees.
Very, very good. All I can say!
Thank you, John!

Thanks, Gary! Thanks for pointing out those bright leaves -- they hadn't stuck out to me when editing, but you're right, they're apparent now.

I think that is one of the strong reasons to show your work to others- and one of the real strengths of the cafe. I know I am often too close to my own work and miss little niggles that should be obvious to me- but they are not. I often put up images here so my online friends and editors can nudge me in the right direction.
I do hope this image goes to print- images like this with depth look marvelous on the wall. I would print it on a warm paper, or warm it up just a tad. Great image

Thanks again. I agree! Thanks for the printing advice. I'll have to print this one out.
