    My neighbors 120+ year old tree decided to split and take out the power lines. I was asked if I wanted the wood as I burn for heat in the winter. Of course I said yes. I got 9 face cords so far and I'm still splitting and stacking. Any way I saw this and thought I should snap a picture. I like the texture and color.
    Any suggestions?

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    I don't really know what did you want to express with this photo... a tree bleeding? as for texture - ok it's nice, but the texture only doesn't make the photo. the photo needs to tell a story to the viewers

    Abstract, no story, so I guess a photo that is not worth looking at.

    A great photographer from your neck of the "woods" is Ryszard Lebmor
    A sample picture is http://www.ryszard-lebmor.org/photos/abstract_images/abstract_image_5/
    His gallery site is

    The top row of tabs are his, the stuff below are advertising links.

    I wouldn't say it isn't worth it. But I'm wondering if a conversion to B&W might work better here. I think the color is drawing us away from the texture. Just a thought.
