  4. Yes, it looks very much like a Japanese print. I love this one. The editing is perfect. The strong, dark shapes of the limbs with the soft hanging foliage is just sumptuous, as Richard said! 🙂 The subtle pink and green are wonderful. This is a favorite and the way I love to see you seeing.

    • I am very happy you like it, George. Thank you for your encouraging words. It is interesting to me how much I stripped away from this image to make it “feel” the way it does (at least to me)–that the sumptuousness you and Richard describe is brought out by taking away rather than adding. I also used the Analog Efex (NIK) for this one and the next photo I’ve just posted, which I enjoy experimenting with a lot.

  5. This reminds me of a Japanese screen, ethereal and translucent. Wonderful shot.

    • Others find it has that look to it, too. Thank you, Yoshi-sensei.

  7. A stunner, Melanie! It’s hard to imagine anything with more strength and grace. I love the subtlety in your processing.

    • Such a very nice compliment, thank you, Karen. The tree itself “in person” (or “in tree,” that is) is spectacular.

  9. My first thought was Japanese print, so I’m going to go with that.

    • Yes, you and others share the same thought. 🙂 Thanks, Allen.
