Forestdread by Miguel-Santos Forestdread by Miguel-Santos
    Come with me to the dark side of Sintra... where silence is everything but peaceful. Three long exposures stitched in vertical pano. Dark but kept it natural.
    Sintra, Portugal - The capital of fear for nyctohylophobics. :XD:
    Companion/oposite piece to Forestshine.

      Side note:
      As I was setting up my camera,
      I was startled by five gunshots in the woods.
      Scared the living daylights outta me.
      Don't know what happened.
      Don't think I want to know.
      There are a thousand dark tales of these woods.
      I've heard many but this one felt too real.
      Strange things are afoot in Sintra. :fear:

This image and that story remind me of a few nightmares I've had...

...and although I do like creepy stuff, I probably would have wanted to get out of there -fast- :fear:

Great picture all the same. :clap:

I can't quite describe the feeling I get every time I look at this shot now, but I like it. Actually I think it feels kinda familiar to me. :-)

You live anywhere near woods such as these?

Scattered-Magic Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Actually, no. I do live near woods, but they look very different from this one. A bit more...wild, they're all irregular ground and messy, uneven trees.

As a stock piece, this is very nice. I'm hoping to see many people using it for their own work, after purchase of course. As this picture was intended to be in dark lighting in a forest, there really isn't anything I can say for technique that you should change. All in all, a good piece. :)
