absolutely magical, yes. The warm red/orange color is already so attractive, the rays of light are like power and energy touching everything. Beautiful. I like that you showed a little mound with two paths around it: it sorts of adds mystery to the magic I also like the little discolorations on the two front trees, which makes me realize their position in the photo is like two posts of a doorway or gate, leading the viewer into the magic.
Robin I can see I will automatically favourite all your new works at this rate, not through blind faith, but based on the view before me. You have a talent to capture what for most would be a superb shot, then turn it into a masterpiece, full of character and emotion, thats stands out head and shoulders above the majority. You have captured this mound superbly, the trees are perfectly composed and again the lightbeams bring a sense of enchantment, escaqpism for me to the shot. The post processing work done, while a mystery to me in terms of technique, have turned this into a powerful and very atmospheric shot. Really superb work, well done Robin. Simon
