Another great one. Have I ever told you how much I love your pictures. You're REALLY good at some simple yet compelling designs, and you use space really well. I think that that big white area is really working here, I love the way that the tree and its shadow come together, and the resulting round shape works excellently against the line formed by the ground. This just really grabs my attention right from the start.

Thanks to all of you for your comments.

@rick_reno: yep, I'm located in Bern. You were living in Zürich? Interesting... were you here for a long time?

@Clean Gene: when I saw the tree there, I just knew the dance needs more space. So I had to extend the wall a bit (which unfortunately can be seen... need to work more careful and double check on several screens). Sometimes, scenes really ask for a stage, no? :) And there is this rather rough, simple, archaic symbolic quality of the bold lines and interestingly combined with delicate elements like the small branches. I do like that too.

cheers

Ahh. Not a bad spot indeed. Personally, I never fell in love with Zürich, but I can see how the city can appeal to some!

Very pleasing, hab. Intelligent, zenlike. Perhaps I am not looking at it patiently enough, it seems like the shadow is not behaving naturalistically(?). The DOF puzzles me also. I find these "doubts" detract just a little from the image's conviction.

The line of the added canvas, could I think, easily be dealt with using the Healing Brush Tool in PS(?).

Thanks, Neil! The shadow is a bit unexpected because of the setup there. The tree stands on a tiny little hill, very close to the wall. So, What we see on the wall is just the shadow of the upper part of the tree and some parts of the tree grow towards the wall, some away from it. This can't be easily seen and causes some parts of the "distorted" shadow.

Yes, the contrast difference on the wall can and should be dealth with. I spent too much time working on the details, so I missed that obvious aspect. Thank you for pointing that out. This aspect is also quite dependent on the screen used to look at the shot!

cheers

Thanks. Yes, I imagined something like what you describe, but couldn't really be sure.

I read your mention of the line down the wall in a post above, so I looked for it! If I had not been forewarned I doubt that I would have noticed.

Neil
