"Dream Woods" is a very accurate title as the whole scene is a bit foggy, misty, almost gloomy and just as you would view something in a dream: definitely noticeable and striking, yet not totally vivid and a bit vague, like you weren't seeing it with clear eyesight. The dark, bare trees and overall mist give it a certainly mysterious tone; the darkness to the right side that looks as if it might be hiding something and the fact that you can see ahead that the wood continues on a ways make it, personally, a bit spooky but also enchanting. Everything about it beckons you to go farther and look around and behind things and see what's up ahead just out of your sight. It might seem like just another picture but it does hold a lot of interest (and makes, me at least, want to trudge through there and see what treasures I find). I can't say there's anything I would have done differently; the whole scene is a bit abstract: You don't have a clear pronounced trail going through the middle trees in the way most woods are depicted, there are wide trees on one end, slim trees on another, some branches are completely bare while some have many leaves, but that all adds to the mysterious feeling the picture gives, and confirms that it wasn't just staged but more spontaneous and rugged. If there was one thing I would have liked to see, it would be some kind of landmark. Something oddly-shaped, unusual or signature that would easily set it apart from any other picture at first glance. The mossy rock in front and the horizontal very leafy branches above it are the most recognizable points for me. But, if it's not the greatest picture ever taken as far as objects and landscape goes, it's in the lead for feeling, tone and interest.
