Branching Out



I really tried to stretch myself today. I thought this birch tree was so beautiful because it was already black and white -- and is was a little overcast today so the lighting outside was perfect. This picture is uncropped, but I did have to branch out a little and play with my new Photoshop Elements just a little! I sharpened it up a bit and added just a titch of color to the black and white. I have to admit, I'm totally in love with this picture!

I love this. And I love how warm it is. The color tint totally adds a new dimension to the photo. Great job!

very nice picture. In a good way it makes it look a little haunting. That is why my home town looked like during halloween and the fact you took it on an overcast day. Just what i think anyway, its kind of odd i guess.

I really like this! I love seeing nature shots in b/w, though, like you pointed out, this one already almost was. I love the texture on the trunk and the angle you got.
