Thread: TREE THREAD - Post your tree shots here

    TREE THREAD - Post your tree shots here

    Inspired by Bleys I love trees... this is the tree thread. Post your tree shots here for discussion and comment.

    1. Only one shot per post to avoid confusion, but post as many as you like.
    2. Colour, BW, highly-modified, it doesn't matter.
    3. Tree(s) must be the main subject in the shot.
    4. Bonsai is allowed
    5. Put a TITLE at the top of the shot so others can refer to it.

    This was shot last year. I smeared the UV filter with Vasoline (DO NOT PUT IT ON THE LENS) then did some fancy stuff that I can't for the life of me remember in CS4. I saw a shot like this yesterday going for up to $9,000! That ain't fair - mine's better (sound of foot stomping and china breaking) http://www.photographersgallery.com/photo.asp?id=2843 BTW they have some great BW shots on that site.

    Bluebell wood...... Better on black

    Excellent. It works so well because of the colours involved. And it's not so overdone that we cannot see what the subject matter is. Clever.

    This one has been on here before ... but since it's a tree ...! At the time the point was made that there seemed to be a hint of colour fringing the branches of the tree. Despite much message posting, I never got it properly resolved. It was one of my first trips out with the then 'new' Tokina 11 - 16 f2.8.

    I just added a ruleto provide a shot title (you probably missed it)

    Lovely detail in the branches - really caught well. That's what makes trees so interesting, I find. They often look better in winter for that reason.

    I might nod off. Yes I might put football on the tv that usually works.

    Cheers Ron, this was going to be called invisible joggers but it is about the trees.

    Boy, "9 minutes from town" is really GREEN. At first glance, I thought it must be over-colored, but I see white on the lamppost, and there's some sky peeking through that looks very nice. Well done, Steve: very rich.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    How does balancing a football on the TV help you nod off?

    Surely, when it rolls off and bounces on the floor, it wakes you, doesn't it?

    Spring Trees in the Light

    This photo was taken in Little River Canyon just as the leaves were opening. I find the variations of leaves in spring just as fascinating as fall colors. This photo loses quite a bit from being reduced in size.

    Very unusual bark, John. Do you know what the tree is? Makes a nice shot.
