    Could it be all these lines are a little chaotic? :scratch:
    Just maybe? ;) ;) ;)

    What lovely conversion (and I take it this IS a conversion and not a photo taken on B&W film to begin with?)! Interesting contrasts.

    But I really don't know what "Banyan" means???

    I can see the chaotic, but more than that, I see the very strong vertical lines. I love how you can peer into the image and see another little detail that you hadn't noticed previously - that's rather more prevalent in the original RAW than perhaps here. So yes, it is a conversion from a shot taken on the 350D.

    As for banyan, all is explained over here --> banyan

    nice photo
    i also like the strong vertical lines and detail
    it's abstract but you can still tell what it is

    No, no flash involved in this, though I can see why you might have thought that. The effect here is just down to the colour of the tree bark, the depth of the shadow areas and the processing.
