The damp atmosphere must accelerate the rotting process - nice frame.

In this case, Jack, I think the framing softening effect takes away from the focus of the photo. I want to see the stump more closely, and all around it...

I like the contrasts of green and brown in this one. Strong shot that looks good in the larger size.

The life of a tree that continues to feed insects even after its demise; so much history in this old fallen trunk, and a very fine presentation here.

Jessica from Maehongson, Thailand

really nice scene here, forests like that always seemed so mystic to me. Like, fairies could jump out from under fern forests floors. The treatment helps add to this mythical feeling. Well done!
