A dead tree high in the forests of Oregon. Not previously scanned, this 6x7cm negative needed little adjustment except for spotting artifacts and dust specks left even though I used ICE (Image Correction and Enhancement) when scanning.
The light in this shot is amazing Don. I like the way the tree is illuminated, showing every detail, every battle scar. Brilliant!

Splendide, avec ce tronc mort en avant-plan. Le N&B lui va bien, un choix judicieux !

Exquisite monochrome, Don. I love the grain in the clouds.
14 Jan 2010 4:19pm
Wow love the way it cuts through the frame and the b&w is just perfect. Great job!

That's a tree that is just begging to be photographed. The light captured is fabulous and you have given the tree almost a life of it's own. Superb

What a good looking , old tree !!! Fabulous capture and very good processing to emphasize this look !
14 Jan 2010 5:09pm
A beautiful photograph with of good detail, a very good contrast, this is a photo that I'd like to do in my tone still bravo for this beautiful snapshot.
14 Jan 2010 5:14pm
Awesome tones. The slightly off center compostion works extremely well. You can't get grain like this from Photoshop!

~` I like it VERY MUCH!!:)
14 Jan 2010 7:21pm
Great image Don. I love your old b&w scans !!

Ohhh this is incredibly beautiful - Who knew an old dead tree could look sooo cooool & beautiful, but it is - Great great b&w! I love it
14 Jan 2010 10:11pm
Comme un spectacle de désolation, le ciel aussi est dramatique, tout se marie bien dans la photo

Amazing tones in this fine image, Don. I'll bet you carried a ton of gear back in the day. But the results speak for themselves.
14 Jan 2010 10:56pm
Excellent shot! Looks like it was just blasted by lightning! You HDR this one? You've got quite a bit of noise in the sky processing... same thing happens to me..
14 Jan 2010 11:25pm
Don....5 stars....a very dramatic shot of this tree with an unbelievable background and an ominous sky!
15 Jan 2010 1:28am
Impressive image! so dramatic in their monochromatic color, texture, lights ... 5 stars!
15 Jan 2010 1:44am
Such a craggy tree with so much character. I like how you've captured it so close and I like the grain in the photograph.
I love trees like this. Love the grain. Excellent, Don.

This is one of the best dead tree photos I have ever seen! What a mood it gives.
15 Jan 2010 2:34am
Wow! This monochrome shot is really impressive. Great job!
15 Jan 2010 4:42am
Great title! This tree has such wonderful character to it and you framed it wonderfully.
15 Jan 2010 3:45pm
This is a fantastic and VERY cool shot :)
15 Jan 2010 4:05pm
Powerful and dramatic commentary on life and death. The clouds in the background enhance the already ominous mood - great work!
16 Jan 2010 6:12pm
The commenter before me beat me to it...the sky and the tree set an ominous tone.
