Amazing, Jack, simply amazing. Like a photograph from the turn of the twentieth century, such an atmospheric shot. Perfectly presented
17 Mar 2009 2:31pm
Talk about an "organic" shot, well done!
17 Mar 2009 2:51pm
i like the affect of the "halo" (for want of a proper term)it makes the image seem light and airy and so very far away.
i feel as if i were sitting quietly with little children and waiting for the faeries to emerge from their hiding places. jim

Cool shot. I like the processing.
17 Mar 2009 3:07pm
fascinating processing and tones...beautiful.
17 Mar 2009 3:17pm
I like the special processing and formatting you did in presenting this old tree trunk. Your work adds to the enjoyment and effectiveness of the image. Well done.
17 Mar 2009 3:26pm
Que de mystères dans cette souche !! des contes et légendes s'y cachent !!
17 Mar 2009 3:45pm
@Alivia: Lots, I'm sure!!
Very cool processing. It looks like a shot that could be found in some ancient album :-)
17 Mar 2009 3:53pm

Great presentation. I like the texture.
17 Mar 2009 5:07pm
neat processing Jack -- it's bordering on abstract -- well done.
17 Mar 2009 5:34pm
Really seems to come from one of these old adventurers books and images at the beginning of the former century. Really, really vintage effect.
17 Mar 2009 5:37pm
Great processing , looks like an old illustation in books !
17 Mar 2009 5:46pm
Wonderful composition and cool processing. Nice one!

@Anna.C: Thanks, Anna. I'm still basking in your gorgeous photograph today.
Soft and beautiful photo!
17 Mar 2009 7:26pm
Yes ! You don't betray yourself, it's stunning in that tone and the details are very strong, a timeless shot of a great explorer discovering a brand new land ~
17 Mar 2009 7:54pm
@k@: Oh, K; if there was ever a person who did not need the Rollo May quote, it is you. Your photographs speak with a clear, authentic and incredibly creative voice. Your photographic vision is phenomenally consistent, and comes from deep inside of you.
fantastic photo, the tones are simply wonderful! the vignetting is magnificent!
17 Mar 2009 8:10pm
powerful in the black & white.....tells an old story.... and none of us out here betray ourselves, do we???
17 Mar 2009 8:28pm
Lovely antique effect, plenty of texture & detail too.
17 Mar 2009 10:58pm
Imagine the stories this tree could tell, superb shot and processing
18 Mar 2009 1:53am
The old stump looks monsterous. I like the treatment you used, very effective.
18 Mar 2009 3:16am
Nice shot, nicely processed. Superb tones :)
18 Mar 2009 3:59am
Stellar shot and post production, Jack! The tones are excellent and this reminds me of one of those old treasures you find in a used book store, something has been tucked away for years, and such a joy to find.
18 Mar 2009 4:02am
Perfect pp for this one, Jack!!! I know it's green and lush but yet with this sepia I can revel in the nuances of the textures and shapes.
18 Mar 2009 4:22am
wonderful textures with great processing!
18 Mar 2009 4:25am
Love love love the quote. This reminds me of a fairy tale.
18 Mar 2009 4:59am
Love Rollo May's insights and it's a pleasure to read your commentary and quotes. Lovely tree.
18 Mar 2009 6:00am
I love the fact how the processing (a properly done one) can change the whole perspective to something that can be so negligible to most of us. Superb shot.
