The police weren't looking for me. Really.

Taken at full extension (200mm) at 1/100, so not as sharp as I would have liked. Best foliage/framing of the bunch, though, so I went with it for the whole effect.

Healed some dust specs
Burned some highlights in the leaves
Black and white layer, lowered opacity and masked
Hue/sat layer, masked
A bit of dodging

Very clever. I like how you used the framing from the leaves to create a hide and seek moment. Glad to hear you did not get caught. :p

LOL :) Posting this might get you caught. Fast moving helicopter capture is very difficult and the foreground tree makes it even more difficult so nice job.

Good use of the rule of thirds with the helicopter positioning.

This shot seems a bit oof or suffering from motion blur. Cool idea that you are the one hiding in the bushes from the police helicopter.

Searching, not hiding...

I don't see how the leaves are contributing to this image.

really like the idea, composition is good, but the branches are just too much OOF and the copter isn't exactly sharp, too. overall it is a bit dull.
