    Tahune Air Walk - way below the walkway - too difficult to actually capture the height of the trees - the whole walk was breathtaking .....\



    And another pointing towards the skyline, but still can't capture the height of these old trees...

    I shot this one a while ago, and went to town on the post-processing. Looking at it now, it's a little to much. Anyways, live and learn!

    Figured I'd add a couple

    The first is a tree at Monticello, and the second was taken in Central Park; both are a couple years old.

    Tree seed fuzz that blows around like snow drifts in the spring. Really strange the first time I saw it happening. Taken with my Motorola E815 cell phone.

    Dan, that is what makes people sneeze!

    I went out this afternoon to a little nature preserve in our corner of the country. This spot is a gem, very old trees that have survived several hurricanes stand there, most prominent are the Gumbo Limbo trees. Those trees are native to the area, also called Tourist Trees sometimes, because the bark peels just like the tourists do after a sun burn.

    Ulrike,
    how the heck did you do that?

    Did you use the original photo and then did the rest of the magic with PS....(I'm not a PS user - too much of a learning curve right now, but wish I were after seeing some of your stuff :-)

    Hi Nadia. I had one picture of one palm tree, one picture of a bird of paradise blossom (the yellow one), one picture of the little orchid. They were all taken around my house.

    And then I just created the rest in photoshop, I stylized the cut out elements of tree and flowers, duplicated them, twisted and distorted them as not to repeat. Nothing looks worse than a repeated element being exactly alike. I painted it with the tools in PS. The scene was a recreation of that night from my memory, a special birthday party.

    I am a painter Nadia, so I am very familiar with how to structure a canvas, how to pit shapes and colors against each other. Photoshop tools are really only one of the smaller parts in the creating of such a scene, it is the long years of working as an artist that gives me this ability.

    I only use PS Elements by the way, it has most all the things that I need in it for now. If you want to do a thing like this, you probably have to start with a photo of a scene, unless you know about creating a scene from scratch. It is much easier to take a photo base.

    To describe the process is quite impossible, since it is done like painting, little bit by little bit, grown.

    You do not have to start with a full blown picture, you know

    Just one element on a background is enough to learn. A baby step! Then two, then three…

    But I understand, it is hard when you can not devote a lot of time to this. For me it is my life

    I've a lot more experience with Fireworks because that's what I use for my web design work ... I'm afraid I have no idea how to even select objects or anything in PS ... I open it up, type some text and have no idea what to do next to get it 'styled'. That shows you what step I'm up to in PS :-)

    That is so strange to me Just as it would be strange to you if I asked about the coding. You are familiar with all of those things, where as I am a baby there.

    When I started with this digital work, not so very long ago, I started in Apple Works, a rather primitive program, but I learned just those basic tools, very fast too, because there were not that many possibilities. After a while those were so familiar, that when I got to PS, I knew at least how to take the first steps.

    I think there is this overwhelming choice in Photoshop. What I did was just play in it. By nature I am very playful, I learn by playing, I do not care if something comes out at the end. I just watch what happens, how things evolve. Then I take one thing that really appeals to me and try to recreate it methodically. With that then I remember the steps I took. Then I build on top.

    But there is another thing also: I have concepts of what I want to achieve, a little hazy, like all concepts are when you start them up at first, but then I push the tools to see if I can get what I have imagined.

    You know, Nadia, PS comes with a help file right in it. That is where I learned most of the things to start out with, just the tools and how to run them, how to use them. It is intuitive later on, once you get the first steps, like you say: selecting an object is a major obstacle in the beginning, but not for long.

    I have never worked in Fireworks. But it is something you need for your web design, I have not done that yet. You could teach me a thing or two in it

    All just a matter of time and really need also. If we all just could live a thousand years

    Okay, finally got myself organized and my Adobe Creative Suite 3 is installed... I'm loving this version of Photoshop, it makes so many things that much easier to manage. Goodbye, Photoshop 5.

    Trying to post these in reverse chronological order so that when I'm done, the original topic order is preserved.

    This is a photograph of an oddly shaped (and somewhat freaky looking) tree stump from the backwoods of a local public (and private) rose garden: Yaddo - most of the land is reserved for artists.



    This is an overlook from a quick trip atop a nearby mountain (the smallest and closest of our 50, the only one I could drive up), Prospect Mountain, in Lake George, NY (you can barely see the beginning of the lake in the picture).



    As I was letting my mother read one of the "tourist" signs atop Prospect Mountain (I brought her along, thought she might enjoy it - I've hiked the mountain too many times to care), I looked up and saw this birch branch. I thought it was a nice shot.



    Yet another oddly shaped tree trunk. This photo was probably taken about 2.5 months ago, when I first became too lazy to (possibly touch-up and) upload my photos. Sorry! :P
    They say, "Practice makes perfect," yet they also say, "Nobody's perfect". I don't get it.

    @ malikyte -- you have some wild looking trunks there.

    On my walk this afternoon I stumbled over this weathered old tree trunk. Hard wood of an Australian pine that is slowly silvering.
