It's been a while since I visited this thread, and I see that I have missed a lot.  Fantastic work here.

Jason, the panos are terrific - were these all taken with the Fotoman?

Here is a photo of a couple of tree stumps from this afternoon's walk in Big Cypress National Preserve.  I was at this spot four weeks ago and the water was up to my knees - how quickly things change.

I like it!  And not just because it has tracks from at least five different bird species... that's just the biologist in me coming out...  ;D

What can I say Claire? The lusty scents and soft sounds are always astounding in your obviously much loved and well studied location...I always love seeing what you'll share next...

What a great thread !  So many tree photographers, so much marvelous work !
I wanted to contribute a favorite of mine taken on a fall afternoon in a shady grove at the edge of a local reservoir. 
The trees were backlit by the afternoon sun.   
I debated for a long time whether to print in color or b/w, but this was the more compelling shot.

Thanks Clair, unfortunately only the misty tree pano and strand trees were taken on the fotoman as I've only had it 8 months, great camera though.

Great picture of the tree stumps, everytime I see a b&w shot I want to see it what the colours looked like.

Ah, so modest... you forgot to mention the perfect balance of those stumps within frame!

Toke, you're something special.

It is not always easy to love the local juniper, but we try.

The other part less photographed of the trees. Same scene, 2 cameras, 2 different moments of the day, different angles.

These two work well together.   The delicate and vital tree against the blasted rocks, and then the blasted tree against the delicate and sublime sky, keep the duality from seeming simple.  I find the second one more powerful, though I wonder about the space on the right.  If the branches didn't close the ground off from the sky by reaching the edge of the frame would that fore-ground have more continuity with the land on the left? I don't know how good a thing that would be or what other complications would fallow, but I wonder.

I only recently discovered this thread - so much wonderful work here, it's a bit intimidating to to post one of my own, but in the spirit of participating, rather than just looking, here goes. Critique is welcome!

Here is a shot I think I posted a while ago.  But I chose not to have the snow look like snow.  By choosing a longer exposure I wanted it to look like fog, but by using snow that was drifting thru the scene I could choose where and how I wanted it to look.  But over all nice scene.  Tim

Thanks for your comments Tim and Slobodan. Some atmospheric elements you can't control, like fog, but snow is different. Tim, you've chosen to blur it to look like fog - in my conception of this image I had chosen a shutter speed to blur it enough to create the diagonal streaks, hoping to show how this tree has stood, and stands, up to the elements, first fire, then ice(snow). Its also a graphic element which I like, taken from a theme in some japanese wood block prints, and a device to give some depth and layering to the image. Couldn't use light and contrast to get the tree to stand out from the background, but the snow helped do the same thing.
