i love the way you have captured the texture of the bark.
the wispy-ness of the clouds and the colour of sky is bluey-grey, which is fabulous against the green of the leaves, which you have made look so soft. how did you make the leaves look so soft? what photogrpahy package do you use?
this is truly a masterpiece and should be on peoples walls for so many more people to admire!
where was this taken? what iso, shutter and aperture did you use? i would love to learn from this photo and how you & your camera work together.
what camera do you have? i use a nikon D3000 and i do love it.
