Winding Path 2 is a different take on the same subject as the original Winding Path image. In this one, I’ve taken the photo at a slightly different angle which reveals a little bit of light in the upper right foreground.
This little change lightens and softens the small stand of trees to the right of the path. This lightening creates a much more stark contrast with the left side of the path. While the original Winding Path is balanced with darkness on either side, Winding path 2 is balanced using two extremes. I think all of this adds to the question of where the path leads and gives viewers something to contemplate.
