Titled after the unforgettable theme from "The Alamo" (1960, Paul Francis Webster / Dimitri Tiomkin), this Challenge is about the green leaves, which keep us breathing. Simple theme. Make it interesting, though. Find a nice lighting, find peculiar surfaces... and do not forget to observe the simple rules. Refresh your memory (or get some inspiration) here:

61st place
We've all got a favorite tree, we'd return to year after year. Think of often for it's fond childhood memories. As a kid ''we'' had a favorite mulberry tree we'd visit every year as a family. In Gyeongju Korea I adore this big ol' tree which grows onone of the royal tombs. Season by season year by year I'll return to this place to photograph it.....So the leaves of summer turn to the empty branches of winter.
