Artistree ...any tree can make your picture

From The Australian Arid Lands Botanic Garden, on the Stuart Highway, Port Augusta, South Australia, to my Creative Exchange entry for this week.

From the original photograph, some coloured-charcoal enhancements added; then a toggle with the hues and saturation levels.


From this one first ...


and this one before it ...a beautiful ageing and twisted tree

As you drive in ....a crispy early morning start, with long shadows

Hi Carole, great special effects here!

I've been enjoying all your wonderful photo shares, your photography is great! I really need to take a photography class now that I have invested in a digital SLR camera, and learn how to use it properly.

I so like what you did with this sculpted tree: your second edit makes it look ready to be printed in a coffee table book.Art Deco style.The charcoal treatment really worked well.

When I was in Perth I fell in love with the trees. They are so different than in Holland.
Again you did a great job. They look like a sketch.
