The shot here is perfect! You found a really good angle to take the photo. I love how the trees cover most of the sky and the horizon, allowing some sunlight to pass through. Most of the shots I have seen are either dense, tall forests or mountains reaching to the sky.

Although the trees here lack a bit of height and are not so close to each other like in the other shots ,its the lack of height that makes this shot so PERFECT. Combining it with hundreds of similar looking trees and soft grass going on and on and on, it gives off the feeling of shallowness and the place being endless.

Overall, very beautiful pic, good job, very unique(to me) and very eye catching. Already in my faves.

I love your photos. I notice, though, that the ISO, f-Stop, and Shutter Speed don't match the dynamic range of the photos. Are you layering and creating HDR? Are you Bracketting shots? I'm not asking for your full process, obviously, but I'd like to know if you're doing this with just one picture or several.

Thanks :3 Keep inspiring me!

Actually I am looking at some other ones, and I am seeing adjustments for longer exposures and taking in more light. So let me just narrow this question down to this one photo. :)

Its unbelievable I think I saw this place in a dream I had and yet Im sure this is the first time Im seeing it. Its so vivid and yet very surreal. The contrast of the sunlight and the bare trees make the atmosphere difficult to judge, almost mysterious. Lovely photo as always.

There's something so astounding about this shot... The lighting, and almost surreal form of the trees makes it feel like a nostalgic dream. I feel like I can smell and hear it.

Very beautiful. I love the feeling it gives as though the plains filled with oak trees seem... endless.  I love the sunset. I love the simplicity. AndI love the eerie feeling it gives me.  Thanks for uploading! Beautiful Shot!

I love Ireland. I've been to the city of Cork. I'm sad I missed the less cityish arias there.

I love Ireland as well, this particular shot is from Portugal though ;) So it's not the city of Cork but Quercus Suber trees (also known as cork oaks).
Sorry for the confusion ;)
