Oh What A Tree

I was inspired to tweak this photo one night when there was nothing better to do. I liked the result. Most of the photos I post here have very little processing, most are just sharpened a bit, or clarified, or gamma was reduced.


  1. Oh what a tree indeed! That is wonderful. I like the effects a lot on this one.

  2. I love trees, each one is very complex and most of time beautiful !

  3. I had nothing else to do, I wished I had the same, Maria this is just wonderful, almost 3D.
    Love it.

  4. A little bit of tweaking never hurt anyone, Ha ha

    Great results. I love trees, those limb like branches are so expressive, and this handsome fella is no exception. If we could but hear him talk, the glorious tales he could tell us.

    A terricic image

  5. @Carver---I did enjoy the effects too. Unfortunately, I can't remember the series of steps I took to come up with this end product :)

    @Zeb--Same here. I have not seen a tree that I did not love.

    @Astrid---Nothing else to do :D that's coz I've been living the old lady life lately.

    @Paul---I think you were my inspirations on tweaking. Didn't you use to do just a tad of tweaking that made your photos oh so good.

  6. I agree with you that the relief filter works with this scene. Nice one.

  7. Oh what a tree indeed. Seems like I can touch it through my monitor. Cool tweaking.

  8. Ha wish I had nothing to do!!!
    I have been laid up with a cold for the past two weeks and man I hate being ill.
    Love your processing Maria very nice:)

  9. Beautiful and creative work!

    Your SkyWatch contribution is fabulous, as are all your photos here. Great work, congratulations!

    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. :-)

  10. @Louis---Just got lucky here.

    @Lizza---Thought my pics could use a little pick me up or a kick up a notch :)

    @Tracy---You are jealous of my pathetic nonexistent social life situation???? Laid up? Thought you were partying up a storm despite being ill?

    @Merisi---Thanks for the visit. I dropped by yours and I enjoyed all your photos.

  11. Sometimes you just have to play around, Mroy!!! :) Good for you.

  12. @Dennis---still practicing :)

    @Ginnie---well said, and i will listen to those who know better.

  13. That's a really nice engraved look

  14. Nicely done...very artistic.

  15. this one is tweaked very well. it now looks more like a solid metal-styled painting.

    you deserve a clap here.

  16. I like the effect on this photo. It brought out the density of the trees.

    I'm so jealous! I can't wait to have coconuts. We don't get them here.

    Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments.
