Student photographer's analysis of the photo:

This picture is very mysterious because of all the trees, branches and leaves. When you seriously look at the picture, all of nature looks like a forest. The reason why it is mysterious for me is because I can imagine people hidden looking at me, but I can't see them. What I like in the picture is the angle because I took it by some branches covering the view so it would look like a warning sign to keep out.
