This is so cool
I have two pics in at DPC at the same time.
Ya I know it is another shot with a single tree in it, so what
Its my dream !!! :D
I continue to exist in the world with one eye forward and one eye scanning the country side for the perfect single tree. I found this one the other day on Hwy 89 just west of Cookstown. It is a great tree, the only problem is the field is very populated with the remnants of the cows that graze in it. In other words there are way too many cowpies. I managed to get in and out with out incident.

Cool shot, and a great song.
I can relate to your search for the best single tree- I do the same thing. Too bad you missed out on this challenge. The fact that this tree is elevated a bit helps things out a lot, I think. And, of course, awesome content as is your par.

Love it! Great story. At first I thought Grimmy was escorting him along, but now it looks like he's pushing him into the soft ground.

Title brings back memories! What a nice song. The only thing more wonderful is the image itself! Outstanding shot.

You're really giving this tree a workout Coley! You are a master of this high key lighting. Love it.

This is one of my two 10s, amazing. The Tears for Fears title is perfect!

I can't think of whose series this reminds me of, but I find myself looking for the umbrella. I really wish it had one just to add a bit more dream-absurdity.

Yours really is a mad world! Thoroughly impressive photograph and illustration of the concept.

Shades of Ingmar Bergman. Well done. Sorry the dreams are the "best". The movies are still worth a look. Try "The Seventh Seal".

I'll be surprised if this isn't a 21.gif Coley entry. Fascinating b/w, as usual.

This was the first photo I was given to judge but I knew it was going to be one of the best. As it turns out it is my favorite of the challenge. I love the composition, effects and concept of this image. I originally gave this a 9 but I'm bumping to a 10 as I'm also a mad Tears for Fears fan :-)
