Wow, thank you so much. I really was not expecting this to ribbon.

I am not crazy about the hands either, however, when I remove them, it does not look as soft and surreal; maybe if I worked on it more it could.

Again thanks for the comments and the score.

Congrats on the yellow, MaryAnn. Beautiful trees, and I love the soft, surreality imparted by the hands.

Trees can really be so majestic. Your surreal approach adds a touch of mysticism, which works beautiful with your b&w conversion. It gives me motivation to take a walk in the forest and enjoy some more of these sights. Congrats on the ribbon!

Beautiful depth and layers to the trees. Congrats on the ribbon.

I go back and forth a bit on the hands -- but I love the concept. I wonder if lightly masking off the branches of the tree in the foreground would have helped -- making it look more like the ethereal hands were cradling the single tree. However, this would have been a more challenging processing feat to pull off. Regardless, the underlying image of the trees strong enough to carry things.

Not sure if I would have noticed the hands if I had not read the comments. Anyway I am loving it with or without hands. Well done and congrats on the ribbon.
