Rough Bark

nikon d90, f2.5, 1/160, iso400, 50mm, exposure bias -1.0, no flash

This was tough to decide... we went camping last night, and I had lots of pictures of "rough", since we were, well.... roughing it! ;) I picked this one because the bark is completely rough, but more importantly, I fell in love with the bokeh! :)

Oh Mindy this is beautiful, I took some shots of bark today too and I really like they way they turned out, love your coloring and the blurred background. Very Very nice.

Such a beautiful picture, Mindy, I LOVE the angle...Like i'm an ant looking up at my next "jungle gym"... well, you get it.

GREAT picture!

That is the coolest bokeh I have ever seen and the detail in the bark is amazing! Well done!

You do SUCH an amazing bokeh job! I absolutely CANNOT wait to get together with you so I can borrow all that bokeh knowledge and step up my skills!

LOVE this picture!!

Wow, that's got to be some really rough bark. You've captured it wonderfully, and yeah, the bokeh rocks!
