    My favourite image of the week without any doubt
    I love it
    the blue-cyan is perfect for this and sets an extraordinary mood

  • Bless you David. Thanks so much for the wonderful comment and fav :)) I did use a blue texture as part of the process, which changed the mood of this instantly.

    Very very interesting! Great composition and I love the effect that you have created with the textures. Gives a lot of character to the lonely tree.

  • Thanks so much George! This is one of those old shots of mine where I loved the composition of it, but the quality was not as good as I would’ve liked it to be. I didn’t want to give up on it, so here it is!

    Great use of textures to create a mood Ursula! The lonely tree has the blues… Lovely work! :-) That’s what I like about layered compositions like this. It allows us to create art with shots that we like but that don’t cut it all by themselves. I believe strongly in recycling. LOL!

  • LOL! Thankyou so much Johanne! I am SO glad I’ve hung onto these old shots of mine. I can’t bear to trash them! Just as well eh?!
