This is a very strange but compelling image Nigel. Is it streched in some way?
Nigel Clack: Nope i think it's just the crop and shape of the trees that give that impression.

You are right about the crop and the trees - they do give this strange impression of stretching. A striking landscape.
Nigel Clack: Thanks Ingrid

Did you chase away the safari animals, Nigel?

Anyway, the trees are looking good.
Nigel Clack: This was in transit

I thought the same as the others, that these trees had been squashed somehow, odd illusion isn't it?
Nigel Clack: Yes it is odd, I dont know whether is has to do with the hill rising or the tractor marks.

Very artistic...I love it!
Nigel Clack: Glad you dosmile
What a superb image of these beautiful and delicate trees. I like the crop!
Nigel Clack: Thanks Richard
Very interesting. I'm guessing that this is still Africa. Savannah trees have broad canopies like this I believe. But the ground is curious -is it hard baked mud? What makes it seem so white?
Nigel Clack: Yep its close to the Mara (East). This field is farmed and has recently been harvested, the white is a combination of sun and a bit of over processingwink
would be happy to hang that on my wall Nigelsmile

it is a wonderful capture, and nicely processed, the shape of the trees are very interesting

Just curious which plugins do you use, just starting to try and learn photoshop myself
Nigel Clack: Google virtualphotographer, this was a gradient map in CS3 thoughsmile
