Beeches are the most common tree in Slovenia apart of spruces. Yet they appear in many varieties and their richness in shapes and bark and foliage color through them and during the year seasons is incredible. There is nothing more green in this world than their late April or early May foliage, nothing more silver than their bark in cool autumn light, and nothing displays a greater contrast than their black wet bark enchained in crystal icy harness during the winter.

Superb use of depth of field to capture a great composition. The rich colours are captured beautifully - well done!!

I absolutely love that new "young green"! And the depth you got in this shot is wonderful.

Very well done Amadej. Common they may be in alot of countries, but certainly very beautiful every time of year. You have captured them in an interesting way by not concentrating on the obvious.

This crisp shot is real nice with the large trunks at left and green leaves extending horizontally throughout the frame. Good use of DOF as the background of green leaves and vertical trunks is very pleasing.

Viewing your shot and finding myself i LA in the month of May while the Danish beech-woods have that aerie light due to the still transperant leaves makes me homesick to the point of madness...
As for the shot; fine idea, great execution, thank you also for the lovely note!

Wonderful green - so tender, with such a love of nature. Thank you for sharing - I can feel the breath of the summer (or may be still spring?) forest

im'not impress by the colors...but THE LIGHT IS SUPERB! IMHO there is no photography without light. You can 16 millions colors and good compo but if there's no light, youv'got nothing. Very Very nice shot! Bravo
