Pavel's Tree Farm shots

A few shots taken while selecting an X-Mas tree at a tree farm.
Couldn't resist all those falling down barns and old trucks.

The images are here

Re: Tree fram shots

A sharp Control illustration (added GREYCstoration too). Here's the full, high quality version. Attached is the very low quality crop version.

Re: Pavel's Tree Farm shots

Wonderful shots, Pavel! I am amazed at the photographers among us who manage to frame such wonderful shots from mundane things.

I ran my "minumum" line art routine then used the blur and sponge tools to tone down the background barn. Used the sharpen tool to add detail to the foreground barn. Texture, frame.

Swampy, thank you . To me photography is not necessarily about shooting spectacular sunsets and mountain views . It is more about creating certain mood. In fact one of my favorite shots is that of an old tin can.
