Challenge: A Single Tree II (Advanced Editing VII)
Camera: Samsung GX-10
Lens: Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4 AF
Date: Jan 25, 2009
Date Uploaded: Jan 25, 2009

"Take a photo where a single tree is the main subject." -- And that's what I've done. Nowhere is it implied or stated that this has to be a real arboreal tree or even a fake representation of a tree. It just says "tree" and this is known as a tree.

This will fail, but I'm happy with it.

Just as a figured, voters are tanking on what is, I feel, a great (or very good) photo.

It didn't come up for me in voting, and I really don't know how I would have gone if it had come up. I think I would have considered it for a few minutes and then gone back and re-read the challenge description. Of course, hindsight is 20/20 and I really don't know for sure how I would have gone. My wife is into genealogy, so I prefer to think I woudl have recognized it as fitting. A good entry and very out of the box.

How is it both a good out of the box concept AND "too much" out of the box.

As you said, "chellenge description clearly said shoot a single tree." -- This does that completely.

Well it certainly is a single family tree, and nicely done. Looks interesting also.

Cool idea! Now why didn't I think of that? On the technical side it's nicely composed and the post processing is bang on, but what I really like about the shot is that it tells a story and it's original. You don't see too much of that here. It will be interesting to see how this one does with the voters. I'm thinking not too well. Hope I'm wrong. Good luck!!

Haha, excellent take on the challenge!

Sepia fits this image well, that was a good editing choice. I wish we could see more of the handwriting and the "WAR RATION BOOK" distracts a bit.
