    Halo Wen,
    Thanks a lot for your input. It is a digital image taken with Canon PowerShot G5. It was taken in a sequence of several shots consisting of colours as well as black-white. I like the idea of burning or dodging to make it better, especially the top left corner which is a bit overexposed. But then I think the overexposed section can represent the idea of present in it (and the underexposed can represent the past).

    Hi Herman. Thanks for answering my question.

    "Thanks for your comment. It is a natural picture without any processing, only resizing. There was some smoke from the barbecue opposite the stream that made the sunlight look more apparent tracing through the leaves of the trees."

    Maybe I wasn't clear. What I meant to ask is if this was a picture you processed in a wet darkroom or is it digital. It looks like a wet room processed image. The reason I asked is because I think it is a little under developed. If there is a negative I wonder if the appearance is in the negative or in the processing. If digital or wet I would suggest some further dodging and burning to make it an even better image. It's a great image, just comes off a bit flat in tone.
