The photograph looks too funky on a white background, and the bottom looks too heavy. lovely graphics here, Nig. Wish we had a choice for a gray background.
Nigel Clack: I should have chopped off the bottom, I agree about the greysmile

Background black for this strong graphic treatment.
Nigel Clack: How did i know you were going to say blackwink

Nigel Clack: OK thensmile
So clever! I like it best on black, but great either way. At first I though it was the same tree flipped round and shrunk, but I've concluded that it's two different ones.
Nigel Clack: It is indeed, cheers Ian

Seems like a huge contrast scene you had: clipped highlights and block shadows. Perhaps try to make a HDR image? ;-)

I like the grass a lot.

Excellent image to fax to someone smile
I like this with the black background. Love the image! Feels very `graphic` rather than a silhouette. It`s a cracker! (:o)
i can see this against one of the white walls in my house - love it
