I confess that my heart didn't go pitter-patter with excitement when I saw this months topic ... but I've given it my best shot. The idea is that the in-focus horizontals of the foreground twigs compete with the out-of-focus verticals of the trunks behind. Dense pine forest can look dark and very cluttered, so this was my attempt to combat those effects.

Pentax K20D, set to B/W, no filtration either in camera or out. ISO 100, Pentax 18-55mm f.5.6 (to reduce depth of field and render background soft) on tripod, manual focus. Post processing: Very light crop + a little tweaking of brightness and contrast.

Hi all,

My name is Kirk, and this is my first submission for any photography assignment. Its actually about the 40th photo I have taken with my new Nikon D60, and most of those were tests!

I live near a really nice park. I found heaps of trees, but none were particularly interesting. As I was leaving the park, I saw this staircase with a distant tree.

Image

Minimal post-processing. Mainly contrast and balance adjustment, minor cropping, and desaturation/blue tint.

Camera: Nikon D60
Lens: VR 18-55mm F/3.5-5.6G
Focal Length: 22mm
Aperture: F/8
Shutter Speed: 1/30s
Sensitivity: ISO 100

early morning 7 o/c i went to the local park to get a photo of a particular tree for this months assignment and it was bathed in the early sunlight, but as i was returning home i was entranced by the trees on the small hill and the wonderful shadows they gave. It was quite ethereal, as no one was about just me and the shadowy trees, i knew then that this was the assignment i would enter. This was taken on auto with a little change to the contrast. naniani :D

I saw that most images this month were shot out in the countryside and wanted to try something a little different. I'd seen this piece on a wall near my bus stop quite a few times in the past and never really paid a great deal of attention until this month where the topic was trees. :idea: "Art is the Tree of Life" is taken from the full quote "Art is the tree of life. Science is the tree of death. God is Jesus" by William Blake, a poet and painter. I bracketed three shots and have merged them together in Photomatix and did a little post-processing in Lightroom and this is the result.

Nikon D300
50mm
F/4.8
Exposure 1/100, 1/50, 1/25

I took this shot of my hazel tree. I have always enjoyed the view of its big leaves and nuts hanging on a thin branch. Yet it is not only my hazel’s strange proportions and light spreading that gave me the idea to title my photo “Nuts” ;)

Well, trees are a symbol for growth and size. But every tree starts out small. And needs many many years to become what we normally think of as a tree! So here's

"a Lil' Tree"

Aperture: f/3.2

For this image, I was thinking, "unique!"
I didn't want "just another tree shot." I wanted something different.
I didn't want generic greens. Nor did I care for generic browns.

So, here is my result:

Focal length: 80mm
Aperture: f/5.6
Shutter Speed: 1/1000
Sensitivity: ISO 400

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...
