Well, As the title states, "Fairytale" Is a great representation of what this photo has lying underneath the image. You did a great job adding depth to the photo by having the camera at a lower angle then normal. The tree to the left really makes the image, As I'm sure thats what you were trying to accomplish here. The colors are very dark and crisp which in my opinion, make this fairytale seem dark and mysterious. My only dislike on this image is the fact that you can see lights in the background, I think the image could have been done better if you were to take the same photo at a different angle of the tree and had been looking into the woods instead out of the woods, If that makes sense. Nonetheless, This image is fantastic and deserves much more recognition! Good job!

On first viewing this deviation I was quite confused as to what I was being presented with. It obviously struck me that trees featured very heavily but then I noticed the lights positioned throughout the frame. As the eye is drawn deeper in, one begins to get a sense of what is being shown to them...we see less of the urban park and more of fairytale image which the title of the deviation intends to evoke.

I particularly like the positioning of the main tree trunk in the front left of the frame and the sharp contrast created by the bright lights in the background. I also like the small amount of flare caused by the lights.

Overall, I think you've done a really good job here! The shot manages to capture the sense and feeling of being in a strange forest while not hiding the fact that this is a site any of us can encounter on the edge of our urban homes or in the large parks of cities. Great work!

I agree with :iconnashc92: 's critique.

The eye is drawn to the tree at first, then the background. When you see the background theres a second of confusion as you try to take in the two of them. You wouldn't think the two would match. However they are both presented in such a way they do blend together, although it takes a second to see the picture as a whole.

The lighting is really what makes this pop. With the low smooth light on the tree coupled with the stark lights in the park, it makes for a wonderful contrast!

Honestly you half expect to see an elf sitting on the tree lol

There can be fairytale type beauty in places you would not expect!

Cool photo. It sorta makes me think of a fugitive from the law running from the cops and into the woods but the cops got the search lights on him and have him trapped.

i like it, the situation looks "moody" and scary in a way, and the depth as described by nashc92 goes on as you focus further away towards the lights, well taken, i like it!

I like the view of the park, especially the way you focused on the forground tree, making the blured lights looking like light orbs out of a fairy tale. Nice way to convert a park into a partially scary forest!
