    ...Couldn't think of a better title.

    Pretty high contrast - I know. I like it though.

    I've been tossing this one around for a while, just decided to do something with it.

    C&C is always welcome.

    Thanks.

    For some reason I've really been liking high contrast black & whites lately... Maybe it's just a phase.

    I really like this picture. I'm all about the high contrast black and white, it really brings out the texture of the tree bark.

    Thanks guys!

    No filters were used, the sky was pretty much completely blown out (exposed for the tree) from the beginning. I blew out what little of the sky that wasn't already gone in Lightroom. Boosted the blacks and contrast. Cloned out a few stray twigs.

    I agree, that's exactly what I wanted to do - bring out as much of the texture as I could.
    I wanted it to be just BLACK and WHITE, as few midtones as possible.


    Glad all of you liked it.
