    LOL a wee bit of Irish in us all! :-)
Well another title idea is
'The Green Zone'

    Thanks. And thanks for the great challenge topic too. It was great to get out and shoot in the 'great outdoors'. I'm getting the distinct impression I need to include ducks in my shots though :-). 'Wearing of the green', huh? Reminds me, we need to stock up on Jamieson for St Pats!!!

    Thanks for all the comments:
LindyB/ I like your title. I had a hard time deciding what to title this one.
goodjohn/ I did try the symmetric crop but decided it didn't look quite right with the way the trees are staggered (not quite symmetric). In the end I decided including the rightmost tree added a bit more interest. My mistake perhaps.

    Beautiful spot light in the distance, very simple and effective shot, why didn't you try to crop it on the right to get a symmetric view? This would work! Good luck

    Cool way you have given the center the promise and faded the sides to make the focal point the green. Nice Job! Good Luck!

    One of my favorite kinds of photos, showing the play of light. One of my TT!

    A very nice capture that you could have called 'The light at the end of the tunnel'! I like this one very much. In my top ten. Good luck!
