Hi Les

I'm assuming you did a lot of work to this. I was looking for a halo around the branches but I can't see any (maybe a little on the one on the left). Maybe the sky is a little noisy from being overworked. Did you add the bird top left? If so, very well done.

A very striking picture of which I'm slightly envious.

Hi Les,
This is an amazing story telling image! Wonderful texture. The tree is amazing. The leftover of what was once another tree further ahead seems to be waving at the birds.
Simply amazing. I could just picture one of Alfred Hitchcok's movies taking place here.

Hi Les,
Very eye catching and good artistic pp work as well. Stunning details throughout the depth of this scene, great presentation.

Hi Les,

Your pics are somewhat differs with others. I observed same pattern of your posting. This is too nice with good contrast. Can you please describe the way you have processed in your next posting?

Hi Les,
This his an impactful image, the tree and scenery came out of a Thomas Ligotti nightmare, for shure! Those birds are cleverly placed.
I do notice the brush work around the tree, tough.
