I'll agree with the rest: number one is very nice... and proves again that the photographer is more important than the tool.

Thanks, folks!  I like to think the photographer and the camera work together.   ;D

I love birches and larches and (fanatically...) the Valtelline valley.

Thanks for sharing your work.  Perhaps ironically, I'd prefer the first one w/o the bright yellow tree taking up half the foreground, and only a quiet greenspace of firs with the occasional dab of yellow from the birch in the background and the light.  YMMV!

Thanks for your analysis. I have the same feelings as yours about this image of some years ago... What does it mean  "w/o" and "YMMV!" ?

Excuse my poor, barbaric English...

Thanks, Bill.  I forgot that not all members have netspeak as a first (second, third...) language.

w/o = without
YMMV = Your mileage may vary (in other words, you might not agree)

Ah! Then I don't agree, let's put the thing so: we agree at 50%... :D

They're all good. I see Mike's point about the first. My favourite is the second, though.

And to think that they forgot the Tree of Hope, the most important tree that there is after the chemical saviour genre.

lulz.  I grew up with #6 which, while beautiful, is more famous for being a corporate logo than anything else.

I would have thought the Bodhi Tree, Bodhgaya would have been on the list.

Thanks for the link!

Here's a shot from Marcia and one from me.  Both bigleaf maples, both processed with an 'orton effect'.

Just not sure if I like the processing on this one or not; it's a B&W convo, and one of about 30 I took of this beautiful sandbar in the Merced River just 200m west of Swinging Bridge.  It's too 'something'.
