It’s not Lothlórien, of course, and these are not Mellyrn-trees, and the model is not Galadriel, but this is a photo without tricks or hoax; the girl elvishly walked down the trunk, barefoot, in part with the aid of a flexible branch that she was handling.

The picture was taken in normal earthly colours -with a rather veteran camera- but I present two different mods here in a better rendering to my taste. I’ve also cropped the upper half (a little more than a half) off the original frame to fit better my aesthetic purpose.
I shot two more pictures from this instant on, but they resulted a little blurred and less interesting than this one, which I post in different ways, under different lights; the second -the “nightly” one- is also a little bigger in size, and my favourite:
