(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.
08/09/2002 12:16:00 PM
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.
08/06/2002 12:14:00 PM
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

08/05/2002 09:34:00 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
08/05/2002 02:30:00 PM
Beautiful!
08/05/2002 02:00:00 PM
Stunning balck and white. Great contrast - 9!
08/05/2002 01:45:00 PM
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.
08/05/2002 11:43:00 AM
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.
