Forest Warmth by kkart Forest Warmth by kkart
There is something to be said for abstraction in nature and this Fall I tended to really study patterns, light, shapes and color a great deal, concentrating a great deal on more intimate subjects. This shot is pretty experimental for me and I certainly owe a nod to Dave Taylor over on G+ for allowing me to take this shot a tad farther and push the boundaries more. It really is all about the light, for without it, an image just isn't all that dynamic.

this work is "simply" amazing! i love it... i'm trying to take photos with a similar effect since ~1 year or something, and i'm wondering how you're getting all the lines (trees, light, leaves...) so consistent straight and that sharp (and i do not mean the trunk in the front). maybe you can take a fast look on this: [link] - it is 1 photo in a collage of 4, rotated and duplicated together. i'm trying to find out how you came to this beautiful sharp result - i only speak for the background, not for the trunk in the front, which was indeed a great idea!
i know your work and talent is miles above mine, but i think my technique or something is wrong while making those shots... don't really know.
would be great to read a few words from you.
thx!

i love the light shapes creating background trees. I find the foreground detailed tree seems almost cut a little too close or sharply. Can't quite put my finger on it. But i love the idea.

I like the idea a lot and the colours and light are very beautiful. I also like that you tried giving this technique a new twist. Maybe the masking could be better because the bottom part of the tree seems cut off (foliage kind of gives it away) however, what you did certainly caught my eye and had me looking at the photo for quite some time, so I would say you are definitely on the right track with this technique!

Hmm a photomanip, it depends on what you consider a photomanip to be :) Who cares though, honestly. Why question the art that is before you?
Most mature and accomplished artists who embraced their own creativity no longer have much use for critique. From that point on, the critic is but a voice representing the tastes of others, who may or may not understand the work, and whose opinion is not likely to make an impact on the artist’s direction. The exception, perhaps, is when the artist considers the critic a better artist than they are. --Guy Tal on his photoblog The Value and Futility of Critique [link]

It turned out very nice. I just did one like this last night. My colors are much colder though (since I took the shot yesterday between Mt. Crested Butte and Gothic). I'll probably post it to my G+.

kkart Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2012  Professional Photographer
yes and no, it can and can't be done, sort of. It's hard to describe, but would require a double exposure. Here check this out [link] it's a very cleaned up version of that with masking added in.
