  1. Hi Katrina! Thanks for sharing your images.

    In the first one I like the composition with the tree going from bottom left to top right. The shapes and textures of the branches and moss are very interesting.

    In the second one I think the centered composition and the choice of black and white is just right. Both emphasize the starkness of the scene.

  2. Welcome Katrina!
    I agree with brc on the first one. It’s a very interesting perspective. That one is my favorite of the two!
    I see you have a “thing” for trees! So do I! lol Reminds me of Dr. Seuss, “I speak for the trees, for the trees have no voice.”

  3. Hi Katrina!
    Ditto what brc said on the first one.
    The second one, I almost get a melancholy feel from the image. I don’t mean that necessarily in a bad way. I like the b&w treatment and the composition in this one also…the height of the trees vs. the low rocks and the trees emerging from the low space in the middle.

  4. Welcome, Katrina!

    I like both of the shots. The first looks like a tree that might come to life in a movie, like Lord of the Rings! The second has its own beauty in its starkness.

  5. Hi Katrina! I’m late to the party, as always (just ask anyone here).

    Nice choice of perspective on the first shot. Unusual and interesting. However, I will break from the crowd here and say that my favorite is the second one. I love the black and white treatment on it, and in a way, it almost looks like the tree on the left is a smaller part that broke off from the larger tree on the right. I almost feel like they have a history to tell.

    It could also be that the shot makes me think of Monterey, which is one of my favorite places in the world. 🙂
