ancient trees

I like this very much, Matt. The colour gradations in the sky add a lot: it wouldn't work in monochrome, unlike many tree shots.

Thanks and yes, the color in the sky is what prompted the photo. I was late for the sunset light as I often am in the winter, trying to get up the trail to a nice vista, huffing and puffing, and wanted a shot of the Belt of Venus looking so vivid since I knew I wouldn't make it to my originally intended spot in time. This tree (that I have photographed before) was the first reasonable foreground interest I could get to before the color faded.
Being late for sunset helps keep me in shape!

One of the compensations of winter is the silhouetting and simplification of scenes - or maybe I'm clutching at straws ?

Two more winter tree scenes - one framing a turgid semi-frozen creek and the other of one of the dead bark-stripped standing trunks that are not uncommon in this area.

I post to get your comments and criticisms and advice, etc., so I hope that these are sufficiently interesting to produce such response.

Very nice, especially the first one...

Could be. i can't see the last remaining leaves clearly, but they look more like a Hawthorn to me.

clever scene, great tonality, too much noise reduction?

Fault may lie elsewhere in its stars than noise reduction, which I did not consciously use.  This was from a Sigma DPM3 at, I think, f8, 320/sec, and ISO 100.

I made two quite different raw conversions in black & white with Sigma's raw converter and then blended them to suit in Photoshop with no sharpening or further cleverness.

Such like is my current fad in processing and worked better here than flogging the color version to death at great length in Photoshop.

Walking down from Whitney Portal to I think it was Tuttle Creek Campground. They strike me now as a little bit ugly, but that is what it looked like at the time.

They're both nicely composed. I like to think I might have taken something similar had I come across the scene. I think I might have processed differently, but that's about subjective preference. I see little wrong in either one.

Well done. I think it's framed up really well, especially the way the cloud hides behind the big tree. I've looked at this picture a few times; it has a lot going on while being quiet at the same time. Irony.

I'm beginning to suspect you carry one tree around in your car and plunk it down in various suitable locations for photographing.  ;)

This one suggests a nursery school teacher (the tree) taking the little tots (the Beech hedge). out for an outing, making them all hold hands so nobody gets lost

You've got quite a collection of nice tree shots now. Time for an exhibit?

Thanks for the positive comments, folks. As for trees - living in the Somerset countryside means I'm never stuck for a tree to include in a photograph
