The B&W looks like a gator or geico eating hi sprey.
Yes the rounded contour of the horizontal root does suggest a gator, although that was not what I visualized at the time.
My Sunday AM promise was over taken by other requirements (make breakfast for grand-kids and help their mom with errands) - walk never materialized.
Rather, I sought to separate the roots from the orange/red clay and bring out the detail in both soil and root system. The first time I've gone beyond superficial use of Silver Efex Pro2, and, I am pleased with the results. As originally stated, the image likely does not appeal to many but personally, I like it.
Not meant or directed as a criticism, but after hanging out here for over 5 years, I have grown bored with the cliché and feel a need to push my personal envelop. If we cannot grow individually, what is the point? And I encourage anyone else similarly motivated to have ago at it.
I get it. The web is a lousy place to show large images intended for print and that one has an emotional attachment. Its much more suited to small subjects that you have no connection to.
I go for a walk each evening, I am thinking about taking my 50D along set for small jpg and just take pictures of oddball stuff and show the jpigs SOOC. Last night without the camera I saw several possible subjects.
Glad to hear it Ben, hope you will share what you capture with us!
