I couldn't find a real woody so I decided to improvise.
I shot this file in raw with a polariser filter. I cropped the image to focus tightly on the snake like log subject. I used the burn tool to darken some of the surrounding area.

Nice try, but this really doesn't meet the challenge.

While it's wood, I don't think this really met the intent f the challenge.

This has got to be one of the most pathetic entries in a long time. There's no sign of a Woody man in the photo, and the title suggests you're clutching at sraws (so to speak). After, how can there be a photograph of something mythical?

My deepest sympathies.

Where's Woody?
10/13/2006 08:26:11 AM
LOL. But a bit of a stretch on topic!

No Woody?
10/12/2006 09:28:25 PM
this to me just apears to be a snapshot with no intrest. Also no woodie.

I can not see Woody, himself. The rules state to "Include Woody in your photograph this week."

I don't like the image: too many weeds and dry little branches.
Besides, DNMC.

DNMC. Would prefer the "python" to be darker/moodier.

a woody that has yet to be carved! colours appear quite flat, the sun and time of day will greatly effect the interest of the photo

I tried and tried to find the little wooden stick man in this delightful image, but just couldn't do it.

I find the picture to be too cluttered to be pleasing.

Ummm, probably not exactly what folks are looking for in this challenge, but it is very creative.

no woody here.
10/11/2006 03:51:51 PM
You don't have one of them little fancy dolls either he? Lol.

Nice sharpness. Sorry, the challenge was more specific, and it's not a woody.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

It would be a nice Idea if the image where a bit more interesting and less sharpened.
