photoblog image bare trees of winter

bare trees of winter

Taken in Western Oregon.  Oops. Didn't crop this one enough on the right side. Just noticed this, but I'll post it anyway.  Have a great day, everyone!

Isn't it funny.  Now I'm noticing all kinds of things wrong with this photo. <<shudder>>  Many apologies, everyone.  At least I'm learning, right?

It's amazing how different trees look from season to season. This has a spare beauty.
Kay: Thank you very much, Red Pen!
You always take me to a peaceful and pleasant place with your work. have a lovely week end.
Kay: Oh, what a nice compliment, Busola! Thank you!
We're all learning everyday Kay. It's exactly the same for me. When I post my picture, I then realize that something is wrong. I'm always in a hurry when I take pictures... !
Kay: Hi Florence, you are so right on that! I have to tell myself to slow down all the time smile
Real wilderness feel to this one, Kay. I really like the swathe of almost metallic colour across the centre. (:o)
Kay: Thank you, Rosalyn!

We'll ALL learning and are usually our own best/worst critics, Kay! It's like I can always anticipate what someone will find wrong with any given pic, so I'm hard on myself all the time. BUT, that's really what we DON'T want our photography to be about, I hope. Yes, we want to get better, but it's also about presenting a bit of how we see the world.

After that...my immediate response to this pic was WOW! It has a surreal, ethereal feel to it for me. As a child I often dreamed I was flying just above tree height, so this one does something to me! I love it, Kay!
Kay: Hi Ginnie, Thank you for your words of wisdom! I think I had dreams of flying similar to yours. Perhaps that's why we like trees so much?
Is anyone ever fully satisfied with a shot? There is no perfection in life.
I like the layered look in the shot. Nice.
Kay: Thank you very much, Michael. smile
lol at your apologies but its still a nice shot!
Kay: Aw, thanks Dami! I appreciate your comment, and thank you for your visit!
I like the tones here Kay...nice and peaceful image. Hope you have a good weekend.
Kay: Hi Bridge,
Thank you for your comment. I hope your weekend is going well.

They look quite ghostly, don't they?
Kay: Yes, they do, Ellie! Thank you!

There are a couple of 'improvements' you could have made to make it a boring picture. That crop to the right is definitely not advised.

The way the lighter copse of trees is arranged over the picture makes it a great composition. Straight lines and trees would have destroyed it. So you just may be your own hardest task master.

Is that the airplane's shadow going over the lighter coloured trees?.
Kay: Hi Louis, Well, to be honest, I don't know what that shadow is from...and that's the main thing that bothered me about this image. Thank you very much for your comment too.
