Challenge: Best of 2006 (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Fujifilm FinePix A345
Location: woods behind my house
Date: Jan 8, 2006
Aperture: f4.6
ISO: 100
Shutter: 1/450 sec
Date Uploaded: Jan 8, 2007

An aged tree, long dead, taken last January on a chill day on a stark ridge; the shape and texture really appealed to me...levels, curves, lab sharpening, channel mixer for monotone adjustments, small areas of dodging on limbs, cloned out a small branch at top, crop..

Interesting photo. Title fits it well. There is a movement in the curves of the branches that reminds me of music. Nice tonal range.

post apocaliptic theme :wink ... good processing, black branches are too dark, with more visible details it would make a difference

Interesting that you title this with music. I hear really sistrurbing noises. Its like looking at clouds, I see all sorts of shapes in theis frightening tree. All of them are really fierce animals. A bird-snake with horns, a skelatal dog, a giant rooster, something else with a big nose and more horns. This is defiantely the stuff of nightmares,

Hey, I'm not sure how you missed it but this is a picture of a dark tree. Maybe there was some dark music in that other shot and you submitted the wrong one.

I just had my friend verify, this is defintely a tree not music.
