The Portal by Nelleke The Portal by Nelleke
Taken last monday. I took pics with both my panasonic and my fuji that day, this pic is taken with the latter.

That small hill in the background is an ancient burial mound.


Editting done: I upped the gamma, contrast and saturation a bit, and processed the image with Noiseware to reduce the noise.

how odd! with all those warm colours... it looks really cold.

How did that happen?!?!

A good picture, clean enough to get the details but not so over done as it falls into the realms of looking artificial.

Like the composition too... the tree trunks dividing the space well.

Nice! :thumbsup:

It reminds me of the puddles from Narnia, the Magician's Nephew, that allowed you to go to different worlds ^^ Beautiful!

You must know by now that I love all your work very deeply, I hope you're able to make a job out of your photos in some way because your passion for photography and love of the beautiful side of life is something that you should be able to share with everyone if you want to. If I ever need/want to pay someone for photos of the world, it'll be you I choose to take the shots. But for now I'm just glad that I get to see these beautiful photos and places :) I want to write big, looooooong, expressive comments for all of them but I'd just end up repeating myself and I don't have the time for all of them. But I love your photos.

I have to say, I couldn't have come up with a better name for this photo, it is exactly like a portal. Particually with the burial mound in the background, it really is an ancient place that one could easily image spirits of all kinds dwelling around. I'd love to read a fantasy book inspired by the scenery in your photos. This photo would no doubt inspire a tale of travel through one world to the next, or perhaps the portal would lead to a time when the burial mound was not ancient, if it was there yet at all. A love story perhaps, the forest is quiet and mist flows through the trees but the leaves are bright and the scene beautiful. Maybe someone has opened the portal so they can step back into the world where their love was buried and see the mound where they were laid to rest. Even if everyone else has forgotten, they remember and while the portal is closed and they on the other side of it the trees stand around the ancient burial mound keeping the dead company and guarding their grave from the elements.

This is so beautiful. Obviously not a pleasant day but the damp feel adds to the mood of the picture. Very good indeed.

Makes me think of Chronicles of Narnia: The Magicians Nephew. I always imagined the puddle portal place looking just like this.
Amazing shot, by the way! ^_^
