Driver3, I

love the simplicity of this image. It is reminicent of of the Amish farms in Penn. Wondeful, tight composition, nothing extraneous to the image.

Mike,

Thanks for the kind words!

Your image of the canal and tree is very good, too. Like Harriet said, it makes you wonder what is beyond it!

Penolta,

The concept and the name Papilio came from the Sport Optics department in the US and if memory serves me correctly, John Carlson, now the digital product manager and Tony Tekansic then sales manager were the people to propose it. It has been a well received product and I am glad you like your pair!


Mike

After a fresh snowfall a few days ago, my wife noticed how cool the trees looked. So I got my camera out and took a few shots. I didn't like the way they turned out though. I didn't think the shot captured how cool the snow looked piled up on the top of each branch, so I started playing with it. This is what I came up with.

I like the way the tree looks like it is illuminating itself in the one on the left!

Nice sharp shot.

I really like the one on the left - did you reverse the colors? Looks like a negative.

I haven't found anything special ... just a shot with the kit lens a couple of silver birch on an embankment behind my back lot. ... Jack.

Yes. I converted to grayscale and then flipped the colors. That was my favorite too. Kinda funny that birch bark looks just as good in w&b as it does in b&w :lol:

Two days after that shot was taken the snow was all gone. Today, it's all back, and then some. I can't wait for spring.
