Well, Tim started this thread, and he said 
I wonder what part of "So I want to see yours" Stamper doesn't understand.


There is another thread which more explicitly invites viewers to post their "rocks", so I think it is reasonable to suppose that Tim was making such an invitation here. Note also that he didn't complain about Mike posting some trees.

Unless Tim objects, I plan to post some trees of my own here soon (real soon, when I get around to it).

I retract my "agreement" to it being rude to post additional images in the OPs thread.  I apologize if I added to the confusion.  I assumed since this was in the "User Critiques" forum that the thread should remain about the OPs images.  But that is not what he said.

Yes I do want you to post, your images.  I think its good to share your images and styles.  This website needs more posting of fine work to get more and more away from tech talk.  No amount of gear or equipment or especially software can make up for the lack of shooting and composing correctly.

AND I STRESS, IF YOU CAN'T SEE YOUR IMAGE YOUR ABOUT TO SHOOT AS A FINAL PRINT THEN YOU NEED TO REFINE YOUR SHOOTING TO PRE-VISUALIZE THE FINAL PRINT.  TRY USING A FRAMING CARD.  

guessing and hoping to get something is not the way to create.  Failure to plan, is planning to fail!!!!!!!    Thanks for posting Tim

Well Tim and everybody else, these are really great tree shots - I like them all, without exception and Tim, I agree with your last post - let's share more.

So in that spirit here are a couple of my very recent ones. The first from Somerset in November, the second from Ontario in October.

While obviously not on par with the other photographs posted here, this tree is somehow special to me, as it is one of the first pictures I took when I rediscovered photography.

This is the first shot I posted for critique on this site. I remain fond of it, and it seems appropriate to repeat myself...

This is great this is what we need more of, sharing and people learning from each others photographs.

My professor said that you can learn more from looking at art, than you really can learn from anything else.  He always said that if you can look at a photograph and ask yourself 20 questions and answer them than you then can apply what you have just learned to the next image you want to create.

Yes of course you need great equipment but they are only tools that allow you to capture what you had envisioned.  Shoot it once shoot it right.

But its great imagery that keeps you inspired to see, discover create your next great image.  I will be posting some thoughts about what inspires me to experience nature and my thoughts.

Its not the galleries or exhibits that keep me shooting and creating images.  Its the adventure to seeing it for the first time come from the passion and love of pre-visualizing it and seeing it come to fruition.  Thanks keep it up.  Tim

Thanks for starting this thread, Tim.  

Here is one of my favorite trees, an enormous and ancient Olive tree in Tuscany.

I would love to see that tree and photograph it with a heavy bank of fog behind it.  I have a thing for big trees.

All of your images appear to have a "Velvia" slide film look. That is they all look slightly underexposed in order not to lose saturation after they are projected. A pro in the photobank industry once told me he always shot two or more copies of originals. One or more copies was intended for magazine or other reproduction use and the other slightly underexposed image for projection in shows. But no doubt, they are wonderful images.

It is quite simple! Start another thread. That is what most folk do. If I want to comment on the original post and there are other posts with different trees below the original then I have to quote the original post with all the thumbnails which adds to Michael's bandwidth? It is simple etiquette?

Beautiful, Tim - and thanks for prompting me to share some of my favourite trees from the southwest of England. Mostly straight shots, but the last 4 are more recent and experimental.

Of course not all photos have to be literal, as in the examples Lois has posted. I do both, but often lean to the impressionistic. They are simple sandwiches or composites, and many times I create such images in camera.
