  4. It’s a puzzling photo. —– tone looks like Chinese blush drawing though, the composition is not Chinese like.
    If this was an abstract clack appeared on the wall, I may see like that, though obviously this is a tree.

        I agree. It suggests a Chinese/Japanese style. Beautifully rendered.

  9. It looks like a drawing of Harry Lauder’s walking stick (Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’)

    • Thanks, Allen. You know when I look up Corylus avellana ‘Contorta’ etc., the images don’t quite look like this tree–they look a lot fuller, more like shrubs. This tree is comparatively taller, too, than the images I see. Maybe I could send you the original, pre-post-processing, so you have a better idea?

      • If you’d like to send it along Melanie, sure that would be fine. I guess what I meant was the contorted branches in your tree shot reminded me of the contorted branches of the Harry Lauder’s walking stick. You’re right-that plant is more shrub than tree.

        • Thanks, Allen! I may do that because I’ve always wanted to know what type of tree this is, and I can never seem to catch the owner of the house out and about. I see what you mean now, and yes there is a similarity in the contorted branches.
