I took this photo while I was hiking in the Pictured Rocks area of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I originally took it because I liked the changing color of the red and green leaves. But as I was editing it in Lightroom I liked the black and white look. It almost has an infrared feel to it. I like how it looks like there is no end to the tree and that it keeps growing out the top of the frame.

the high key really works here, it accents the tree that jumps into the frame, I like it

I really like this photo I just think it is way to bright and it takes away from the quality

I really like this image, but have been staring at it & can't figure out anything that's moving into or out of the frame. Either I'm missing something, or I can't see any relation to the challenge.

I don't know what to do with this one... It's a wonderful shot. I really like it. But I just can't see it meeting the challenge. The subject is supposed to be moving in or out of the frame. Yes, the tree continues past the frame, but the tree isn't moving out of the frame (or into it). The tree is just sitting there. I'm sorry.

after thinking about it a bit, i'm guessing the tree tiself is "growing" out of the frame...did i miss the mark? 7

the high key processing is nice. i just don't see any of kind of "moving" in or out of the frame, the image looks very static.

I can't see anything moving here -

What's moving here? The tree growing? Does not meet challenge.

I really like the processing on this one.
10/14/2009 04:21:54 PM
I don't care for the processing here.

i find the overexposure in this one very distracting.
