(Gasp!) Oh my! This is beautiful. I love the dark and lights blend and contrast to one another.

interesting contrasts, though seems too dark in the shadows// trees

Wow! Great job!

this is the kinda shot that i was gonna take but I decided not to. really nice photo, the roots are great. I think the background might be a little bright, but I'll give it a 9. -Konador

This is a good composition and being in black and white helps it I think because of the trunks and roots being in shadow and the foliage behind the tree being bathed in sunlight shows a huge contrast difference that may have been understated if in color. Initially, I couldn't decide if the branch in the upper left added or detracted from the overall photo but I think it does belong there and breaks up the bright whites of the background foliage. Nice job.

I like the soft focus and the lighting. Almost mystic. Good composition.

Exactly my style. I can't help but rate this one highly. Only detraction is the lack of evocation of oldness. It's there, but it's fairly oblique.

Nice. I love the crystallizing look of the backround, it works well. Great job.

Classic. What I love about the art of photography. You've told be a story. Thank you.

Love the rich blacks in this pic.

This is hard to make out but I kinda love it. Would make a great album cover.

I like this alot but a wish the imag was more clear, it looks a little fuzzy or out of focus.
08/06/2002 12:07:00 PM

Visual Impact / Originality - good

Classic - like it... It's very spooky. The background has a misty, mythical quality. It looks influenced by Tolkien's Old Forest... (10)

Tree and roots are just a tiny bit dark for my taste - I would have liked to be able to see more of the complexity of the roots, but otherwise, I really like this photo
08/05/2002 03:27:00 PM
the background foliage looks liek you shot it IR. Have you experimented with Infared? Nicely lit!!!!! very well done. 9

Stunning balck and white. Great contrast - 9!

so cool..i want to reach in and touch it
08/05/2002 01:40:00 PM
I like the post processing that makes the trees in background go white. The problem with it though is that it makes the darks very dark without much definition.

Beautiful...i wish more of the tree top could have been shown...it looks 'cut off' to me. 7 Lisa

I like this a lot... it's very abstract, but such beautiful black and white. The composition is perfect. A 10 from me - lisae

Great Black & White! Almost looks like an infra-red photo. Great choice of the use of B&W.
