Hello Matte5, The shot is gorgeous & moving. I like that you've focused on the smallness of the tip of the branch. It creates a more intimate understanding of that single branch, in that precise moment. For me, the image evokes a quiet sense of solitute ... as if in the silent hours of a crisp, clear winter morn.

Ah, the trials and tribulations of a committed artist. Been there, done that. Isn't it sometimes amazing that bizarre positions we contort ourselves into -- to get the shot. Thanks for the chuckle, Matte!

I think this is really pretty. It almost has a calming effect to it. It reminds me of the cover of a Christmas card I saw one time. I glad you saw it and took the picture. And wow! 250 shots?!

I don't think you are crazy. I liked it! Its real calming, its even computer background material. Some people like simple and nature. And that shot is as quintessential as it gets Matte.

Are you a photographer? Your an expert photographer for me. I'd love your picture. Do you have a class for photography? If you do I want to enroll in your class. Not kidding I admired your pictures. The angle it was shot and the scene. And best of all is the quality of the picture, it was great. It just a branch of leaves but it turned out really good with your artistic mind. By the way I'm learning photography so any tips from you is highly appreciated.
