Shooting an enduro race this afternoon and had to capture this scene on my wanders of the track.

Lovely woodland scene but there's something weird going on. What are the bright lines running up the right hand side of the tree trunks? I initially thought it was sticky snow but it clearly isn't. Then thought it was strong reflected light coming from the right hand side but the light appears to be coming from the left judging by the lightness of the left side of the trunks. It might just be an optical illusion or a trick of light but it doesn't look right or natural. Any chance seeing the original with no PP?

Thanks, it is a optical illusion I think although I hadn't given it much thought until you pointed it out. At the time of day this was the light would have been pretty strong from the front right but as you say the LHS of the trees is lighter.
Here is the original as it was straight out of camera.

That is an interesting effect. Nice shot regardless.

Great scene and the light lines make sense to me as it seems that the light comes from the right hand side.

Good work for me.

Love the scene, Ryan - beautiful colours and form. For me, it looks a bit bright and I wonder if darkening it down globally and then adding an invisible vignette would give it more impact?

Many thanks all, @Pete Larkin I think I was giving all my shots from yesterday a bit of a brightness boost to try and make the most of all the colours going on in the trees. I gave your suggestion a go and quite like it as it focuses you towards the center of the shot where the trees are leading.
Anyway here it is.

Yeah, that works better - I'd even be tempted to lighten the middle a touch more - but that's just me. Beautiful shot.
