I have attached another rainforest image. I am still trying to decide if I like the colour or black and white image...
This week we are shooting dogwood and redbud trees in the Smoky mtns. I have three weeks for this shoot.

I vote for the B&W version - a very compelling image. Enjoy the Great Smoky Mountains. I am shooting all next week in the Columbia Gorge, trying to get everything I can before everything leafs out.

You might do well to name the spot.  What seems to me to be a grown over and then burned over terrace could support quite a number of "historical" imaginings and moral examples.
Bruce

These woods were attacked in the past years by the beetle scolytid Ips acuminatus and by a fire. Today remain large areas of death and desolation. Since I found nearby a pole with a goat skull, as a sort of ominous sign (see the attached photo), I could  name this spot “The goat skull grove” (? 8). )
P.S. The embrasure was part of the second defensive line of the  Italian army. It was never used, since the austrians never broke through the front line of the Stelvio (Stilfserjoch).

Hi Paul

Thanks for the feedback and thoughts. I have attached another rainforest image. I am still trying to decide if I like the colour or black and white image. The density may be off a bit. I did these just before I left. I will post both and see what people think. This one was taken ten days ago on a shhot on Vancouver Island with Tim Wolcott. We had a great time. Tim has incredible passion for photography and the pursuit of the ultimate image. This week we are shooting dogwood and redbud trees in the Smoky mtns. I have three weeks for this shoot.

I like the color and black & white layered together:  87% color and 13% black & white.

Excellent. Commonly a bit breezy there, is it?

Can be a tad on the breezy side. Typically, any trees not in a reasonably sheltered spot, tend to be a bit battered & twisted. Down in the valleys/combes, it's more sedate & pleasant

The second set (Beeches) looks like Exmoor, too.
Both sets of trees have real "character."

I much prefer the "breezy" ones to the sheltered ones.

Just not sure if I like the processing on this one or not; it's a B&W convo, and one of about 30 I took of this beautiful sandbar in the Merced River just 200m west of Swinging Bridge.  It's too 'something'.


Seems gorgeous to me... excellent local contrast, detail in the snow - the processing is ideal, as the photograph. Nicely done! If it's too anything, it's too Ansel Adams and I mean as a compliment!

I just returned from a shoot with Tim Wolcott in the Smoky Mtns area. This Dogwood tree was of particular interest to us. We got fortunate to get a heavy fog one morning and I got this image. The image taken the days before without the fog is also interesting.

This is glorious.

Jeremy

Thank you Jeremy.
It is a fantastic tree, and a very stubborn one perhaps - refusing to give in to the beach-eroding waves without a fight !
