Eye of God

Eek! The devil tree ate Jim's granddaughter! Clever, Frank.

I finally gave in and did one. Since someone made this poor tree into satan, thought I'd give it equal time as god...an alien god, perhaps.

Does anyone else see that horse behind his shoulder? This picture is like looking at the clouds...you keep seeing things. Or maybe Alan takes enchanted photos!

David, Jeanie, Phyllis, omeyas, Phili and Danny,

Thanks so much for the kind comments on my photo. It has been one of my favourites for a long time. It was a photo that just "was there" for me. In color it just does not have the impact, that it did in b&w and that was obvious on the lcd. As far as the contest win goes it took 11 months of resubmitting it every month, and every month has a different set of judges, before it won the picture of the day. So who knows, I guess it is a picture you either love or hate. My title for the picture is "The Snake Tree" for the obvious twist in the limb, that is what caught my eye.

The things you people do with filters and photoshop amazes me, I have no concept how to generate a lot of the effects, I can run a few actions but deciding how to get there is beyond me.

I am enjoying looking, lurking and picking up some things to try.

Alan

Thumbs down

Frank great job. I like the eyes.

Phyliss. All I can say about yours is God wins out over Satan. Wow that is awsome looking really god like. GreaT Job.

Alan I knew it was a winner. Some pictures have no place being color and that is one.


I love good Photography so when I see shots like that it makes me love photography even more.

Rainbow Snake

The snake ate the chicken. I think that my head bobbing up and down is getting to me, I've gone weird.

Tree's got Bette Davis eyes.

Good arrangement of colors, Phili. Yes, sure looks like a cross between snake and chicken...LOL!

This twisted tree is making all of us a little twisted, I think. Here's my latest nightmare. Tried KPT6 gel filter and added some color with a radial blur zoom filter. The eyes were made by twirling the tree with the kaleidoscope filter.

Jerry, love the colors you chose to highlight your sketch.

I figured since the tree was already twisted, I couldn't hurt it much by twisting it even more, so here they are (you knew this was coming, right?)
First I used KPT's materializer filter to soften the rough lines a bit, then added color.

This is a straight pencil with a touch of softness.
