Briliant.It looks like a story of thousand nights and one night.
The girl Arises as a dawn and your greatness does not overcome the greatness of the enchanted forest. Very good master piece. Sorceress.^.

I love this, the way the tree draws the eye dow to the girl. Also, I would love to see Angkor Wat. Well done!

micki said...

She gave a great sense of scale to the tree's roots and the architecture around her. I like this shot!

ana said...

The roots looke like fingers creeping down to catch the un-suspecting girl.

dave said...

The little one was a surprise. Funny to discover her amid those massive shapes.

Dan said...

Great shot, love those massive roots on the tree and the little girl brings so much perspective. Great shot, oops I've said it again :)

Very intriging shot. The perspective between the roots and the girl suggests a story in the making.
