***** CHALLENGE #141: Tree(s) *****
Mar 3, 2012

This challenge will end Sunday, 18 March 2012.

Tree(s)

The challenge is simple. Show me a photo where the primary subject is a tree or trees. That's it. More details below.

Rules

! VERY IMPORTANT ! please reply to the FIRST (ORIGINAL) post if you are submitting an entry and please RENAME THE SUBJECT TO INDICATE THE TITLE OF YOUR PHOTO ENTRY.

The host gives you a topic of interest and you get going. you will submit your best work. You post ONE image (if you post more than one image, the first will be your entry in the challenge).

The host chooses a winner after closing. The decision of the judge (the host) is final. The judge is not eligible. The winner then chooses the next topic, runs the challenge, judges the winner and passes on the baton to that person. If the winner fails to post a new challenge within 72 hours of being declared the winner then the runner-up should post the new challenge within a further 24 hours.

You could have taken the photo at any time.

I don't care what kind of camera you use.

Color, B&W, or anything in between.

Feel free to comment on other contestant’s images. if you want someone to leave you a piece of constructive criticism, put (CC) next to the title of your image.

Please embed your image in the thread. Try to resize your photos prior to posting so they’re sized appropriately for viewing without having to scroll (800 to 1000 pixels on the longest side works best.)

Title the photo. "RE: CHALLENGE #141: Tree(s)" just has no romance to it.

A tree or trees should be the main subject. Trees are incredibly common and usually quite ordinary, so be creative.

Good luck, and thank you for entering.
