I’ve posted this here before and don’t know if that’s cheating… If so let me know and I’ll delete it. Don’t remember which category it was in.

Is this a composite: No
Shot back in 2012, applied Topaz Simplify to the rather boring original.
Lovely DOF that takes me right up that mighty trunk to the top!
Oh Diane, you’ve really processed this one beautifully. Almost watercolorish if that’s a word. Please let me know how you did this. Amazing image. It makes me want to crawl right into the image and climb that tree. I love the soft branches mixed with super defined and sharp branches giving this an eerie look to it. What a tree.
Thanks @JohnSnell and @David_Haynes! David, I used Topaz Simplify, which I seem to have lost in the latest computer and OS upgrade. Hope I can figure out how to get it back as I love the unique effect!
