--- Post-processing: I changed the colours, upped the contrast and reduced the noise.
My photos are NOT stock. This means I do not want them to be used in any way. I don't mind them being used as a reference for a drawing/painting though: please visit this link for the rules nelleke.deviantart.com/journal…

I appreciate the vertical orientation; it really does make it look more interesting and give you more to focus on; you see the trees as lines, not trees. The distance as negative space, and you can see the detail of the branches connecting to each other. It offers a different perspective. Not everything need be normal! Fantastic job
I found out why I prefer this version instead of the normal or upside-down version, it's the ground! There's too much of it and it has too little texture, it doesn't add anything to the photo... If you're used to reading from left to right you focus on the branches here and not on the ground, which is why I prefered this version. When a part of the ground is cropped out both the normal and the upside down version look tolerable
I love the colors, but when it's tilted that's all I focus on. Tilting my head to see it 'normally', I see the wonderful forest scene lit up by the amazing color. It's a good experiment, but personally I'd like this better horizontal vs this vertical.
I thought people would dissagree with me on that But I myself find it horizontally to be quite dull, there's nothing to really focus on... In this tilted version my eyes get led to the textures of the branches that I didn't even notice in the horizontal version. That's what I decided to upload it after all
