Mind if I jump in with some? Dartmoor is an area of high ground in Devon, a county in the south west of England. Constantly buffeted by south westerly winds, & with precious little shelter for the most part, many of the trees are stunted and twisted. Hopefully these give a flavour of this.

Sorry about the above post - can't seem to edit away all the multiple photies, and trying to get them in a line seems to really screw things up too.

Ch. Bill...the next to the last, with the stone stepping plank carrying one into the environs has something very nice about it..hunger for a bit more room, or info on the left..location looks prime for a serious pano...Pat

I'll tuck in a couple because they got me thinking about things I pass daily "on my way elsewhere...I seriously need to keep in practice Tim's mantra.."observation of place"   Thank you for this topic Tim... it's been good seeing through others eyes...Pat

This isn't a great image, just  quick grab, but Marcia and I were quite surprised to see trees in bloom... in January.  Victoria is still in Canada, after all.

It's certainly quite a lovely forest.

A couple of tree shots. One from my cabin in upstate New York where these are the only shots you get this time of year with 300 plus inches of snow. The other is the kind of place you like to go this time of year.

Interesting tone, Bill: would you mind revealing how you did it?

Guys some very nice here recently posted.  Sam very nice.  Wish I had some images that I could put up.  But since the movie studios own the rights I can't share.  But really like this Topic.  JP

I used Silver Efex Pro (30 day trial version). Can't remember the specifics & the original file has been lost (Aperture crashed & I lost recently uploaded photos).

I also use Silver Efex Pro in my B&W conversions.  Try it for thirty days, you'll be hooked.

Have you guys made a large print of these images using this software, are there any digital artifacts that show up.  Thanks Tim

In a word no.  Inherent in any optimization workflow be it CS4 or NIK software is striking the balance of not overworking things while ehancing to your specific tastes.  All photos even unaltered ones are interpretive. That being said beyond the usual controls of contrast, brightness etc. in Silver EFX pro are other wonderful creative controls such as structure (like a super ACR clarity slider) and film effects with graininess in stylizing.  With softproofing and adequate profiling I have been quite happy with prints up to 17x22 on my Epson 3800 with both luster and matte type papers.

Thought I would add some more tree and how you can use them to give a ground to your image.  I also will share a wizard like trunk that is very much like lord of the rings.  Tim
