    Nice image,very nice,however the bottom left corner distracting me.Thinking about that I saw this image like a metaphor of the embracing even you don't think that when pushed the buttonI applied Magic Wand Tool on the front tree with 70 tolerance then Ctr j to copy the selection then Image>Transform>Free Transform to increase the aspect of an embracing.

    Of course,the embracing is not one for love only.

    Radu,I struggled with this photo's background. I think the left corner is distracting because it's much lighter than everything else. What I really wanted to do was make the background have a smudged impressionistic feeling. I tried to do this but it wouldn't come out to my satisfaction.

    I like your version. For whatever reason, I like to view things from a more distant perspective. I'll have to look at your version a few times to see if I want to "steal" it.

    I appreciate your comments.
