the mirth tree is tipical of sardinia and Corse. I found this, in central Sardinia,have a special color and appearance, with the moss. zoom 70-210 at some 77mm f7,2 1/125 ISO 1000 (the only way for the dark of the environment) matrix sistem
TReatment in N.Picture levels, curves, a bit contrast, sharpness, reduction of noise, a bit blue+

Hi Valerio,
This does look like some primeval forest! I like where you placed the trunks in the frame and how the eye flows through the scene. I decided to try a few things in photoshop to perhaps give you a few ideas you may want to try out for yourself. First I cropped from the bottom to get rid of the leaves on the LLC. I then lowered the brightness a bit and boosted some contrast. I then went in and dodged and burned selectively to give more of a ominous feel.
Overall I think you composed this well just let me know what you think of the tweaks.
