Polish forests are quite dense what makes it quite difficult to get clear landscape shot even with ultra wide-angle lens. However, they are quite good to create shots full of mystery.
There was some fog when I was photographing so I decided to go with the latter. In post-processing I manually blended 5 exposures to restore some of the darkest shadows. Besides I greatly decreased image saturation what resulted in a sepia-like look of this image.
