I like the first one - simple composition, good color, effective use of light.
Tom all these are great, very artistic. Anna :)
Tom: I'll go with the two trees as my favorite. They are all very nice.
I like the first one best. I also like the green leaves after the roots. Nice lighting on all.
I love the work you did with the light. They are all very artistic. The two trees are my favorite. Great post.
I like the 4th shot the best. I've often spent time considering light & the fact that we can't actually see light, itself (photons & whatnot,) but rather the effect it has on other things. Interesting stuff, light...
Wren- Thanks. For all these pictures, I wish I had my better lens on the camera. The purpose this evening was to take dragon and damsel pics, so I left the macro lens at home. My sigma cheapo 70-300 is quite servicable in a pinch however for isolation shots at 70 mm.Thanks anna.Guy- I like these the best as well, particularly the last shot which I believe is a black willow.Mary- Thank you. The light was spectacular this evening.Travis- Thank you. The last one almost reminds me of something tropical.Lana- Yes...This is an excellent point. I always marveled at how the lighting worked at my college library. The space between the bookshelves and the downward pointing lights above them always seemed so dark, even though the light was bright and so were the bookshelves. These pictures really demonstrate the same exact thing. You have explained this phenomenon that I have observed but not really understood. Thank you.Tom
Stunning subjects that you captured with the light!
I really like the first one and all of the tree root pictures very nice composition on all of these.
