ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.

THE TREE. (02/03/14)

Untitled-1 I pass this tree most mornings and still haven’t sorted it to my satisfaction. I suspect colour popping is a step in the right direction. This will enlarge with a click.

Have a good week.

  3. At first glance, I thought they were naked women waving their legs in the air.

    1. Frances, I wish they were. Not the subject for a blog post though.

  4. Wow! I wish I could do that with my pictures but I'm thick. Ever seen the "Where's Wally?" books? Well your third picture suggests a new series - "Where's Westie?" Frances Garrood has also accidentally spawned a good idea for a new photo book series. Chapter Six - Frances Garrood? But I hope her legs aren't as gnarled as that!

    1. YP, the dogs are forever getting in the pictures.
      These were done the hard way with a brush and a mask. What software do you use. I suspect it could do it one way or another.

  5. I already "liked" a version of the second image but I like the 3rd image because of the encroaching trees, however I wonder if a simple change of making the "alive" trees in colour and the dead one in B&W might work better?

    1. Douglas, I'll have a go. It is a little too dark to tell but appears to be snowing hard outside. A good day for playing.

  6. From the angle furthest to the right, it looks like a howling dragon to me!

    1. Monica, it is whatever you wish it to be. A beautiful sculpture by nature. I'm glad the foresters left it.

  7. Works for me. On the middle one, about half way up the erect section, it looks just like a wooden bat taking off.

  9. I can see why you would play around taking photos of this tree. It's got a very sinuous appearance.

  10. I also like what Douglas suggested. The third image looks very good; although I like the triptych and the idea of the study because you see all the angles at once. This tree's bark is simply beautiful. I like what you've discovered here.

    1. Well, after reading Douglas' comment between the lines, I actually, I like the dead one in colour better

    2. Maria, it was the very devil to select. I didn't save the masks and so it's another painting job. Ho Hum.

  11. Love the pictures, reminds me of antlers, or the first one is a bird in flight and the last one a seabird diving. Or have just got a vivid imagination ?

    1. Cath, it's a dead tree but feel free to interpret it anyway you like. Imagination is good.
