I especially like the spinning poplar.
I think John was giving that poplar dance lessons for quite a while before he was ready to photograph it.

I like the spinning poplar too, but I wonder if the camera survived the fall.

Well, thank you gentleman. Such concern for dancing trees and my ever humble Pentax camera. The trees never scold
me or get upset if I take their picture. Even when their doing a sultry dance.

Very sultry.
But I wonder how the JMR stays sharp and focused?

I love it. The details in the shadows are revealed gradually (like good food or your favourite wine)!

Thanks Francois and Eric. This is same shot as before. But this one is a straight shot with shallow depth of field and one leaf being lit against the others in dark shade.

The dark areas are in shade and help create contrast and mystery. Like the the black fox I saw carrying what appeared to be rat as he darted through the brush in the dark shade.

Thanks again Russ and Eric. It started as walk after a rain, and for all the world, it appears to turn into a walk in the garden of Eden.

Yes.

Doesn't matter, I appreciate the attention and the comments. The reaction I get from most people who see my ICM images are favorable, followed by, "They look like paintings. How did you do those?"

Russ, I'd give the image a definite yes which just goes to show how subjective these judgements are.

You're right, Keith. That's true of all sorts of things. Interesting, though, that some photographs, poems, musical compositions, paintings, etc., appeal to huge numbers of people while others go thud. I find some of John's work very interesting, but at heart I believe an abstract image has to come from a paintbrush. A camera's far too objective, even when you wave it around during the exposure. All that does is show that you waved the camera around during exposure -- not exactly an abstract idea -- or result.

True enough, Russ, but I particularly liked the image, in part at least because it wasn't obviously a result of waving the camera around during the exposure.
