    I think you have a special and wonderful relationship with trees.
    Beautiful shot.

    I would frame and hang that in my home (all of our hanging art is of trees). Great shot.

    Oh Mohain, the colour of the sun on the grass beneath the trees is just gorgeous. Well worth the whiplash from the sudden stop to get the shot, I'm sure!!

    Great photo. It puts out an almost surreal feeling. I would hang this in my home as well.

    Well, I'm with Dani: also I think that you and trees, or trees and you, really click ... erm: I mean ... connect. And click ... with the camera - you. You click (or should there be a photo around somewhere with yourself in it, taken by a tree, maybe, even? :shock: :confused: ??? :biggrin: :greenpbl: :lol: )

    Lovely soft light ... I still don't know how to add that to any of my photos (and I have one similar to this in my archives, taken in summer, but would not know how to get it this soft and wonderful).

    Well thanks alot for the very kind words everyone :)

    LaFoto .. it was a misty day but there are a couple of things that help the soft light thing. One is to dupe your image to a new layer, select 'screen' as the blend mode and reduce the opacity to around 20-30%. Then flatten image and dupe the layer again and gaussian blur the top layer, but not by loads. Then change the opacity of this layer around 30-40%. You will probably need to tweek the levels a touch after.

    Cheers :mrgreen:

    I might try this, thanks for the explanation ... only don't I remember to ever have seen "screen" in my 6.0-version, but I might not have looked closely enough... but there is one photo of mine that could do well with the treatment. I'll try... thanks again. And make sure the trees and you keep clicking! :D
