    and got a few shots in before it got dark.

    Here's the first one I liked.

    A few more came out pretty cool.

    I couldn't take too many shots. I had to keep one eye on my little girl and the other out for Burmese Pythons!

    ok, you've got me, is it a bush, a small tree or full grown? To me it looks like a full grown tree implanted into the picture (pardon pun). Very cool.

    It's a full grown dwarf cypress.
    I'll post a shot with more context when I get back to the house.

    Thanks.

    Here's some with a full size cypress. Feels like a family.

    I couldn't decide on color or b&w with this one.

    I would go with monochrome again,

    only thing is I find the stuff in the foreground a bit distracting, but I'm a noob so maybe I'm wrong... but hey everyone's a critic ;)

    I think its the grass being slight out of focus that gives it a feeling that the trees are not originally in the picture. They fade into the grass. I think a repositioning 20' to the left couldve helped the last picture focus more on the main tree imo, but the lighting might be off then. I like 1, 2 and 3.. interesting pics.
