I think they are both some subtypes of Fagus, although I might be wrong.

All good but rest.jpg is my favourite for two reasons - the rows and rows of saplings crowded together creates an interesting visual, but the picnic tables really make the shot for me because of the horizontal planes they add - so unexpected when you get to them.

Something about this tree I just love every time I pass it.  So many stories to tell...

I went around those trees there several times as towards the end of the day the contrast and light between those tightly packed pines are very appealing, but I wasn't really able to get something that I was happy with. I didn't see the potential of this one when I shot it initially. But fast forward a couple of years and I realized that the right crop could make the image much stronger. Sometimes you just need some time away so you can come back with a fresh perspective.

Armand, I particularly enjoy the #3, Rest. It has a certain Andreas Gursky quality (this is meant as a compliment).

Well, one thing is for sure. The size of this print won't be even close to what he does, maybe 2-3% at most (although I would be thrilled if somebody will be willing to pay 2-3% of what Gursky is getting paid  ;) )

PS. you seem to have an interest in Gursky these days

I wondered about that. If the fall doesn't bust the tap root, the tree will continue to grow for years. They're kind of like spinal cord injuries, only part doesn't work right anymore while the rest regoups and figures out how to survive.

So I tried printing that "rest" shot at a larger size (roughly 12"x18"). At normal viewing distance, such as 4 feet or so it looks very nice however on closer inspection it was significantly less sharp than I expected. A look at the metadata made me realize that it was actually shot with my old Nikon D50 and with about 1/3 cropped out it is a little stretched at that size. This might not be the best place to ask, but have you had any success with uprezing/upsizing the photos and then printing them again? Do they look any sharper?

Looks like a wonderful and rather unique place to be!  It's a wonder those trees (especially the second image) hang on when there are spring floods.

Ormiston Gorge is in Central Astralia.

Most rain in Central Australia is the result of summer monsoon activity that brings large volumes of rain to northern Australia as well as tropical cyclones that originate off the north-west coast. In both instances it is the frequency and degree that the monsoon troughs or cyclones penetrate south and inland that determine the amount of rain that falls.

Nice video of the Gorge here.
