I LOVED shooting for this challenge! It really required a whole different way of looking at things. Not knowing what the corresponding negative colors were, it was a lot of trial and error. Then I had to decide if the image looked better in b/w (negative) or in color (negative). And if in color, which conversion process to use: curves (color negative), or the invert adjustment. Those were the only adjustments I made to the images:

convert from RAW
curves (color negative)
save for web

Ta da!

Wow - this is amazing! I'd have never "seen" this quite this way - and it turned out wonderfully!

I would like this much better if cropped right at the bottom of the main stalk there. Had it been cropped there it woulda been a 10 from me - as it is I'll give you a 9.

Lovely shot and great comp. The leaning tree just makes the shot extra special
