****** CHALLENGE 270 - Dead or Bare Trees - Results ******

Thank you to all of you who submitted entries.   There were some great shots and picking a winner was difficult.

Without further ado . . .

Honorable Mention: Bare & Bears - TomS53

I enjoyed the pun :-).

Runner Ups:

Waiting for Spring - martianphoto

I like the composition and the feel of this one.  The mountains kept distracting me from the tree, though.

No Longer Green, I am! - TomS53

I love the tree, but I found the limb at the upper left distracting.

All alone in the Shadows - mf2004

I really like the sense of isolation in this image.  Too bad there wheel tracks are there.

Dead Tree in the Alps - Kaugi

Another one where I like the composition and the juxtaposition of the old has-been tree and the new life growing around it.

Twilight Bare - JoeNap2

The colors are wonderful.  I wish the tree was sharper though.  It looks like you focused on the background rather than the foreground tree.

Canyon sunset - martianphoto

I really like the lighting on the tree with the background already in twilight.

Forest Giant - jomike

One of the few submissions that focused on the texture of the bark.  I love it.

Galaxy Tree - draacor

When I first saw this, I thought "Wow." I wish I had dark enough skies to get this kind of shot.  Well done!

And the winner:

Canyonlands, UT - pmallahan

This is the kind of shot I had in mind for this challenge.  I love the texture of the wood along with the shape and placement within the image.

So, pmallahan, the next challenge is your!

Thanks again to all the participants, and for making the judging job so difficult.
