I just had to add a portrait format version of Associates, because I think that i prefer it.Two river red gums standing together as they have for probably hundreds of years.
Photographed in Central Victoria. Three images tone mapped in Photomatix Pro

Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

    This version has a very different feeling. To me it emphasizes the details in the lower trunks, especially in the tree on the left. I like both versions!

  • You are right. I’m glad that you like both!
