I thought this would have been interesting, the little acorn with the big Oak behind OOF. Not came out how i would have liked though, Acorns not sharp and it's not got the feel I wanted, , will have to try again.
Cheers Chums. Mark

Is the mist from a body of water or from a valley? Misty mornings always catch my eye and pull me in. What were you hoping for in trying to photograph the acorn?

For what its worth, I actually like the acorn picture. I like the mist in the first shot, but I find the tall spruce tree on the far left to be distracting.

I too like the acorn shot as well as your second shot. The first one reminds me of the smoking hills in California during the fires.

Hi Kevin,
Thank you,
I get the mist in the mornings comming up from the cally and the river at the bottom, some mornings it's like being above the clouds. I used the dodge tool and a brush with soft white to make more mist and give more contrast to what was already there.
The Acorn, I was hoping to have the acorn sharper and a little bigger but I was as close to it as the focus would go. I tried to make it bigger in free transform but it looked distorted. I'm liking it more now, I want to try it again with a more majestic oak and some more atmosphere but I haven't learn t that yet. I think the Oak may not be easily recognizable as an Oak and wanted to say from little acorn grows big Oak, Ill Try it again as I like the idea of it.

Hi Hoff,
Cheers Matey,
Yes the Spruce tree, I tried a crop without before posting but wasn't sure if it was loosing something or getting better, I appreciate your comments on that and think your right, it is distracting.

Hi Bynx,
Thank you, aaa ha, so it sounds like the Acorn shots ok, I,m loving this picture taking and trying different things.

Thanks Guys for taking the time to reply, mucho appreciated.
