Subtlety....Nature

Challenge #1 in the Subtlety series. Hosted by jalywol.
Challenge has finished
Most people are so used to seeing bright, dynamic, significantly processed images in this digital/Photoshop era that they tend to overlook the less punchy photographs that require a little more effort to appreciate. Photos, of late, seem to be judged by whether they reach out, grab you by the lapels, and shake you to get your attention. This challenge is to show us images that are interesting and thoughtful, but don't look like an exploded clown of color/sharpness/HDR.
