I like this shot. Just enough green but we can still see a long way up. Now if you did this as an HDR you could have had some color in the sky. Then again it may have spoiled what you have here. I like it as is.

Carla,
I agree with Bynx considering how well the exposure was handled especially the sky you did a very creditable job. The details on the bark are quite catching.

Thanks, Bynx and Selvin. I have lots of trouble doing HDR and i am not so sure I really like the results. I have used Photomatix and PS.

The results are what you make them. Id start off using the defaults. Just hit the DEFAULT button and that, for me, makes a pleasing natural looking pic. Then by moving the sliders, particularly the smoothing ones, your pic can then go in a different direction. Which I also like.

Vertical shots of tall trees are very interesting. This shot is no exception. Great job.
