This shot, is not originally what I had hoped to accomplish...but, I like it...this was taken at the Park, in Ventura, Ca. This old palm tree, thrusts up to the sky, right thru the branches of another tree, if I had to guess, I would say, this palm is about 80 feet tall...towers over the other trees...defiant. Something a little different for you...taken from base of the tree, looking straight up...hope you can see the little cloud...I waited and waited for that...lol..
I realized when I got home, that I inadvertently left my ISO cranked up...(from taking photos the night before....just goofing around, and spaced it.)
I put a little vignetting and softened it a little, too...fooling around in that new picnick program, from Flickr. Hope you like it...
here are the horrid specs...
