that we may record our emptiness.” - Kahlil Gibram

    No matter what they say, just because you like it doesn't mean it's good, lol! I say you go girl - experimenting and taking risks is a big part of what innovative art is all about. It doesn't always work out but only by exploring different presentations and getting feedback do you learn what others find attractive and maybe what you might consider doing differently next time.

    Thank you all for your comments. I was really "testing the water" with this and I now know NOT what to do in the future. My friends did try to dissuade me but true to form I ignored them.
I'm glad you like the poem Mepo and mrsawyer I appreciate your condolences :-)

Only one problem remains. I still like it myself!

    This doesn't work for me but kudos for showing something really different. I do like the composition and am going to steal the poem as we are having two lovely old ash trees cut this spring due to the Emerald Ash Borer.

    The high pass effect spoils this final result as nothing appears sharp

    First Impression - 2/5
Contrast - 1/5
Composition - 1/5
Tone / Texture - 1/5

Not too sure about this image. Too over processed for my taste.

    Interesting but unsure about the PP and light fringing - the figure is interesting.
