    ..its real, but it's not, so must be surreal !
I think the composition and use of sky as the background adds to it and if seeing it for the first time I would be non-plussed .....in my tt.

    You can't get much more surreal than this! Good strong colours and great composition. High in my TT.

    I am getting pretty familiar with the sights around Melbourne. :) Nice capture against the deep blue sky.

    Thanks LaRee. Your comment is a perfectly valid one. Unfortunately if I composed further down you would end up seeing the Bolte Bridge in the background across the river and trying a different angle, such as lying on the floor, did not give me enough cow. I think I took 6 or 7 angles and this one seemed to work best for this challenge.

Actually when surreal came up this shot popped right into my head. I had shot this before but I went down one morning before work and did it again. Gotta love public art.

    What a perfect find for this theme! Any way you could have composed it with the tree closer to the top? I'd like to see more of the lower trunk in the image. Good submission!
