I like this one, but I wish the foreground was more interesting.

Too many good images here to comment on them all, so I'll just say thanks!

What I call the alligator tree, first snow in the Yosemite Valley, last November, Cathedral Beach.



Same tree, B&W, with more trees from across the bank in reflection broken up by ice.

The color casts in #1 just make me keep looking. i would enjoy seeing a glossy large print - something like the Japanese landscape calendars i see occasionally.

All those "legs" on the gator remind me of the Heathrow Express train when it comes into the airport station. The side lighting makes it look like a giant millipede running into the station. But i digress.....

Yes... the almost complete desaturation and the composition in #1 are very good, and I saw the 'alligator' before reading the text.  Second one is okay but I prefer the first.

This past year I've captured a distinctive tree in spring, autumn and winter.  Just got to get it with green leaves, has any else done this and want to share?  
I found it quite fun to see the changes. (from roughly the same spot).

Thanks!  That is exactly how it looked that morning, with no color adjustments at all in PP.  If you look to the back of the pic, you can see some faint yellow and green bits in bushes that had not yet been completely covered up in snow.  The colors were really great that morning, and the ever-changing valley ceiling conditions really put on a show.  To give an idea of how variable it was, this is from the same morning, of that famous elm (I think) out in the middle of Cook's Meadow.

Here are some that I might be able to follow with the changing seasons as I am often in their vicinity, all on a hill in Western Massachusetts.

The tree in the second photo is the same as the left one in the first photo. I can't decide whether I prefer it in color or B&W.

In this case I'd go for the colour.  It's subtle, but important.

Not without a little trepidation, I'll disagree with Mike. I think the B&W brings out the overall structure and the textures of the wood, which lie at the heart of the shot. For me, the colour is merely what I'd expect: it adds nothing.

Thanks Mike and Jeremy. I guess this reinforces my own indecision, having two such discerning critics disagree.

Trepidation, Jeremy?  Why?  You're certainly welcome to your opinion!  (however wrong it may be...  ;D )

Sorry, couldn't resist.

That's OK. I know my place: hence the trepidation.

You guys remind me of the old codger at the political debate.

After the first pol spoke, codger turns to his neighbor and says, "By golly, he's right!"
After the second pol tore apart the first one's arguments, the codger says to his neighbor, "By golly, he's right!"

Neighbor then says, "But wait: they can't both be right."

Codger thinks about that a moment and says, "By golly, you're right, too!"
