Yes...I would like to see where it goes, and discover what is making this tiple-track.
The processing adds another layer of mystery...
Samarth: thank you ray...

Nice on Sam. The blur gives it the quality of an impressionist painting. Cezanne perhaps.
Samarth: grin...

I really like the way the path leads your eye around the bend. The processing is terrific, too.
Samarth: thanks a lot robert...
Très belle série, bravo. Pascal
Samarth: merci...
This is so soft, a dreamy vision, an invitation to walk (still waiting for summer, longing is more appropriate in fact !)... Fresh shadowing trees...
Samarth: thank you florence...

Were you trying to simulate lens tilting?
Don't know Sam... the random blurring along with a messy bunch of leaves ain't looking too pretty for me.

Sowee, not for me sad
Samarth: honestly, had no idea what i was doing with the blur..this is definitely a job half gonna try this picture in brown one day...

Inspired choice of focus. It seems to suggest that there are betting things to come.
Samarth: thanks martin...
Eerie for me smile

again your composition is pleasing, what you see, your eye so to speak. I'm not sure if the process here works for me but i'll follow any developments you might find in it with interest because it has something. at the moment the word thin comes to mind on colour [and i have no objections to reduced saturation so its not like i see it as a gimmick like partial desaturation] perhaps its too much green tone like its begging for the suggestion of another colour. As for your having no idea what you feel i suggest you explore what it is that made you see it like this, because there is definitely something to be had out of the feeling the image gives.
Samarth: what i saw, and wanted it to be, was something enchanting, which is why i went with the blur...and that was a mistake...what i really wanted was to develop the light and shadows, and as you say, make it interesting by using different tones...
Warm, cosy and self satisfied! Excellent piece of work young Sam
Samarth: thank you alistair...
Belle perspective et belle harmonie de couleurs avec une légère nostalgies
Samarth: grin...

I feel like captain Kirk warping into over drive, speeding down an avenue of rural beauty! I'll tell you how you should feel about this master! "Proud" to have taken such a photo, that should be your feeling.

As you know, I'm generally landscaper and I wish this were mine. malimpressed
Samarth: lol, you can be such a geek at times...thanks a lot malwalker...

I think this one could have been nice if the was distinct filling light in the middle of the alley.
Samarth: that's an excellent suggestion....because, along with creating atmosphere, the surrounding blur would also be relatively darker...
This shot makes me just want sit under one of those trees and daydream. Good job Sam,the effect is perfect for the shot. smile
Samarth: thanks again tom...
Wonderful PP and composition !
Samarth: thank you zeb...
Dreamy...great PP! I really like it.
