BlancheBarbe: Does that tree stands at the top of a hill ?

yes but a VERY small hill in an otherwise flat landscape.

I've got nothing but praise and admiration for these images. So what if there's a large degree of post processing - at the end of the day it's all about implementing an artistic vision which Elena does masterfully, including all the non-post processing she does in terms of lighting, subject matter and composition. And for those who decry post processing as somehow a distortion of reality, they should really put down and run away from their digital cameras which also do a fine job of distorting reality with a wide open aperture especially on telephoto lenses.

aftab: Remarkable jealousy shown here by those who will never be able to produce anything remotely close.

we see this kind of criticism of excellent photography time and time again on DPR, almost always by people who post few or no images of their own. These are also the self-proclaimed experts on post process who universally despite Photoshop and instead say that Lightroom is a much better program. The "experts" who say that the post process distorts reality fail to grasp that digital cameras by their very nature also distort reality. Whatever. Bottom line is these images are truly remarkable.

I just checked out your posts. overwhelmingly they're angry, condescending and ugly. you should have posted your own self portrait in this challenge - surely it without any post process would have trumped my entry in /Grumpy Old Men/. Perhays you should try avoiding these forums because they're obviously too distressing for you.
