    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Waiting for Rain.

    One of the many metal gratings that protects the location of every city tree in downtown San Antonio, Texas. Thank you very much for viewing.

    That's a clever composition and it makes the image work. That close-in presentation of the contrast between nature and a man-made object sets up a very good image.

    Thanks, Donald. The contrast between the soil, the tree, and the metal gratings were the first elements that caught my eye. Then, a little imagination and I came up with this vision in mind and Lightroom helped me bring it out from the original image. Cheers.

    I like it Willie!

    I like the way that no matter where you look around at the metal grating it forces you into the base of the tree and then up the trunk.

    Nice work

    Thanks, Tommy. That's exactly how I want the viewers to see it. Yey, it worked!
