This is the next entry in my Cassie project.
This is the same tree I used in "Angel Flew Too Close To The Ground" My daughter (carlee_h22) and I had to ask permission from the old lady who owns the land where this tree resides. She remembered me from last winter. "Oh your that crazy photographer who hung the wings in my tree"

Thanks to my model for trudging across the muddy field with me to take this shot.

Hope this does well

I like the mysterious aspect of it. Has a long ago feel. Would make a great book jacket image. 8

I like this one, like the use of black and white and the pose of the woman, looks very eerie.

I don't care for her position in the image..think it distracts from the fabulous tree

Hard pressed to call the tree the main subject here when ther is a pretty girl in front of it at a thirds-point!

This is an exceptional photograph. The background sets the tone and mood. Excellent balance of color and texture. The girl completes it. Perfect 10.

I'm not sure that the model adds to the pic... the tree is great though.

Though I like this shot, I think it may have have fallen short of what it could be. Great concept and technically well done. Good luck!

I would have scored higher but cassie is the focus and the tree is not all in frame and that wigs me out. Sorry. 5

This is a really cool shot, and I appreciate that you took the time not only to find a great location but to set up a subject as well. It looks great in black and white, and the details like the girl's white dress and black boots further work to enhance that choice. I also like the fact that her face is obscured; it adds a sense of mystery and also helps the tree remain a focal point. I think a little extra dodging and burning may help to add even more punch and definition to the image, but that is just personal choice. Overall, I think this is a strong image.

Interesting, I like it...:)

love the contrast/sharpness, but for me the model doesn't add anything here
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/11/2006 08:50:31 PM
nice shot but I would say that the tree is the main subject 6

Nicely rendered in black and white. Your choice of depth of field is reveals the intricacies of nature especially in the reaped field. The white gown is so pure against the rustic setting. I also like the pose - but the girl's head is, to me, slightly in an odd position overlapping the tree. But overall, very nice. 8.

Perfect in every way...the sky,the way Cassie is standing,the movement of the dress..a definite 10.

when Schopenhauer saw a man who had hung himself in a tree, he said: "If every tree bore such a fruit"
just popped into my mind when I was this photo.

I think I woulkd like the whole tree but you probably expected that.. Nice image idea

Love the use of a model here - adds more interest to the single tree theme. I also like the way you cant see her face (doesn't take away from the main subject). Nice exposure - the B&W adds drama to the scene. A little bit of dodging & burning done to the tree ? A lovely shot - best of luck.

yikEs! really has the whole "Ring" feel to it ... very very very creapy..

well done

I wonder how many people will say that the tree is not the subject here. I don't know if I agree with them or not... It's a great photo though...
