    Thank you very much both. I'm really pleased you like my photo :-).

Looking at the 'Voting stats' I don't think I've seen such an even spread of votes before. Saying that, about 60% of people didn't vote for it at all. I guess you can't please all of the people all of the time ;-) .

Note to self....must try harder!

    Beautifully captured, with amazing texture. I can almost smell the cedar boughs. Excellent detail and composition. I just checked out the link to Ansel Adam. I like your photo better.

    Ansel Adams indeed. He would have proud of this image. Great tones and perfect for the challenge. Crisp focus makes everything "pop". High in my favs.

    Maybe a bit less contrast would have been better I think. In my favs.

    Lovely textures, strong composition.

    Well-shot technically, as befits an homage to Adams. Note how his bottom leaves descend in size and are arranged in a rhythmic rotation that reflects the round shape of the upper one.
