The texture is incredible. Very attractive tree.
10 Jan 2010 5:24am
Nice details. Silver Efex ?
10 Jan 2010 5:40am
@Hiro: Absolutely. All of my B&Ws have been run through Silver Efex.
Very impactant b/w, a great effect and a beautiful tree (s)
Thanks very much for the link. I'll try to learn how it works :)

Beautifully shot & processed Jack
Makes me want to go out in the snow today & buy Silver Efex
10 Jan 2010 6:15am
stunning, great shot
10 Jan 2010 7:24am
Wow !!! That is inspiring !!!
10 Jan 2010 7:29am
I think I'd go back to that tree again and again, in every season. I love the ice/snow all over the branches. You must have caught this one shortly after the bad weather and before anything could melt.

L'arbre aux mille tentacules ; superbe. Bonne journée.
10 Jan 2010 8:01am
Quelle sérénité et quelle majesté dans cet arbre drappé de son manteau blanc. Le mon de est beau.
10 Jan 2010 8:15am
Love silver effect
10 Jan 2010 8:27am
Magnifique arbre. Que de détails, avec cette glace.
10 Jan 2010 9:05am
Excellent texture; what a beautiful picture!

Oh dear Jack, I love this, I love trees, and this one is a ballet dancer, it dances with joy, it's the most amazing thing, million stars
10 Jan 2010 9:56am
A lot of, but works well to underline all the branches/arms of this wonderful big guy !
10 Jan 2010 10:14am
10 Jan 2010 11:41am
What a wonderful tree!!
And I can say same also from your photo, beautiful!
10 Jan 2010 11:53am
Amazing detail and texture. Great in B&W!
10 Jan 2010 12:45pm
A beautiful contrast between the space filled and empty space. Designs in contrasting silver color space with black color patterns. Branches scratching at the sky! A marvel for the eyes and soul, Jack! The forest spirit lives in this big tree that protects us all! Many kisses for my teacher! Each photograph is a lesson of a good photo ... thanks very much!!!
10 Jan 2010 2:00pm
I love the composition. Very nice to see the big tree in the centre.
10 Jan 2010 2:11pm
Basically it's a great looking tree. With the special condition which highlights the branches it becomes a beautifully textured tree! Fine image.
10 Jan 2010 3:39pm
beautifully done. it really grabs your attention.
10 Jan 2010 3:40pm
Like this rich tree and also very rich monochrome ;)) Great processing, Jack !
10 Jan 2010 4:15pm
Very cool effect!! Beautiful stand of trees to shoot again and again !!
10 Jan 2010 4:47pm
Okay Jack this has got to be the best of your last few because of the detail. I mean sometimes I like blurs but I also like detail and you nailed this one spot on plus I think you got a touch of HDR going on here and you didn't overdo it.. it looks natural yet very defined. Tossing a 5 at you!
10 Jan 2010 4:53pm
@Self-Indulgence: Thanks. No HDR. If my memory serves me right, I ran it through Tonal Contrast (in Nik's Color Efex), which can lean toward an HDR look; then I added some Structure in Viveza 2; and finally I used the High Structure preset in Silver Efex.

Stunning Oak Tree! Really good shot, and much like our big oak trees in Chico.
10 Jan 2010 5:03pm

10 Jan 2010 5:17pm

10 Jan 2010 5:33pm

10 Jan 2010 5:40pm
Wow, what a wonderful tree !
10 Jan 2010 7:33pm
Very nice shot! And now i will have to go google silver efex :)

all these branches "twisted" form a very graphic!
10 Jan 2010 9:22pm
excelente! un potente árbol , la naturaleza en su pleno esplendor.
10 Jan 2010 9:53pm
Simply a wonderful picture!
10 Jan 2010 11:02pm
I love the roughness of this...effective and so evocative of these winter days.
10 Jan 2010 11:34pm
beautiful. love the strong contrast on this
10 Jan 2010 11:47pm
Lovely. What exactly is Silver Efex?
11 Jan 2010 12:23am
@B. Thomas: Take a look. http://www.niksoftware.com/silverefexpro/usa/entry.php
Look's like you're enjoying your new toy .. :-)
11 Jan 2010 12:30am
@Mirza Ahmad: If you are talking about Silver Efex, I have been using it for over a year. And I do enjoy it.
A lovely contrast.
11 Jan 2010 12:54am
Hello Jack....I have been out of the loop lately...and not likely to be fully back in yet. This is beautiful! So glad I checked today. Cheers!
11 Jan 2010 2:47am
Looks like it is made out of twisted wire and metal. I love this and you chose a perfect tree to do this processing with!
11 Jan 2010 4:28am
It certainly does look as though a man made sculpture has been errected here. Beautiful limb like branches
11 Jan 2010 4:32am
Love those branching patterns. Great shot, Jack.
11 Jan 2010 5:07pm
11 Jan 2010 7:12pm
I just love bare trees..they show such a different personnality of themself..wonderful capture and process
12 Jan 2010 7:56am
This tree is magnificent !... a winter beauty...
12 Jan 2010 8:53pm
