Roots

Posted by Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 21 July 2007 in Landscape & Rural.

Photo taken in the North of England and post processed in an experiment to emphasise the way the light hits the roots of this lovely old tree.

Like what you see here and are interested in photographic composition?.....the blog section of my website now has a complete set of 5 articles covering my personal approach to the subject: Ian Bramham Photography - Blog

ill be honest with you. to me it just looks overexposed. oh and the lens flare looks like bubbles.

@Andrew: Thanks for your honesty Andrew. I appreciate constructive criticism - I made a decision to experiment more as I want to try and get beyond the stlye of photos I've taking since starting to take photos at Easter. I guess its going to be a hard road learning but I'll keep trying and I would appreciate it if you could drop by and give me your frank opinion now an then!
All the best,
Ian

@bronzebilly u.k.: Thanks - I don't think this particular experiment was that successful but i'm going to keep trying new stuff. Photoshop is not really my thing and so I think I'll need to improve my photo taking ability and imagination more rather than trying to do things in PP.
