I gave this an 8 and the purple cast is all that kept it from scoring higher.

(I would have guessed Pinus contortus :) )

Texture and HDR - Nice. Seems to have a purplish tint on my uncalibrated monitor. Angle is a little disorienting to me.

Nice finish, Dick Richard! I love the title, and I like the way you've chosen to render the scene. I'm curious to see you're calling this a Ponderosa. I don't doubt that you're right (you live there after all, you *should* know, and I'm sure you do) but every Ponderosa *I've* ever seen, or heard of, is very tall and very straight of trunk... Is this a different variety of the family, or have I just been blinded by stereotype?

Regardless, congrats on your top 10!

What an exquisite tree. It seems to be alive. Love also the perspective with the mountains at the back.

What an odd dynamic of nature... I pondered the 'forces of nature' on this fine photo!
