this could make a nice image at the right time in Autumn!

Looks like one of the roads on Nävlingeåsen, in the area of Kristianstad, where I usually drive. But of course, we have hundreds of similar roads in Skåne. Anyway, it's a beautiful picture (with perhaps a slight bluish tint)!

Re: Winding country road under a canopy of trees

Very nice scene with lots of potential.

I agree with 1Dx4me about autumn being maybe a better time for that scene when the leaves are in full colour.

Or, as is, maybe add some soft rays of sunlight coming through the trees.

Also, the imbalance of the road in the bottom right corner is a little off-putting to my eyes.

Maybe crop the bottom of the image so that the amount of road on the bottom horizontal edge is the same as the amount of road on the vertical right edge?

Or maybe crop the bottom to where the road meets the right vertical edge and turn the image into a panoramic aspect ratio?

Hopefully just some food for thought.

Thank you for sharing

Re: Winding country road under a canopy of trees

It is definitely a beautiful picture fall or no fall colors.  The trees on the left really complement it well.  I tried adding a little  contrast and it really sparkles - try it and let us know what you think. If you decide to take out the near left white rectangle, I would clone it first and see if it missing bothers you.  If it does then I would crop it a little so that it is not obvious that it was taken out  given it has equal spacing of the rectangles.

Thanks! This is west of Sankt Olof.

Thanks! This was a "spur of the moment" while passing by, so the shot was rather quickly improvised. I agree autumn probably would be beautiful.

Thanks! Not sure if I follow you regarding the road markings? You're welcome to edit the picture if you likeĀ

How's it look with the bottom 20% cropped off?

Imo it would look better as I suggested earlier.
