A table in Sorrento, Italy with a pine tree. The last of my table mini-series.
Un bien bel endroit pour se reposer.

@dj.tigersprout: Thanks very much, Jaycee.
Thats a really odd looking tree. You seem to have taken the image in a nice place.
5 Sep 2008 6:26am
@Rags: I think the tree has been cut and mangled somewhat. thanks, Rags.
I have quite a similar table shot on my HD. I should post it one of these days. Thanks for the inspiration. Is there HDR processing involved in thsi one?
5 Sep 2008 7:47am
@Mirko Herzner: Thanks, Mirko. No HDR here, just adjustments of shadows and highlights, curves, hue saturation and sharpening. There is also a bit of noise reduction.
:-) A really nice place you've found there!

@MadScientist: Yes, I think so. thank you, MS.
What a delightful composition this is ... with that rather sad Pine, but it surely anchors your shot.

@Judy: Thanks, Judy. Yes, the pine is a might mutilated.
Really nice composition, Michael. I like the light at the top of the tree. Excellent table series.

@Veronelle: Thank you, Veronelle.
What's left to say Michael, every time I think I can't like something better, I can't, I really can't because they're are so different in their magnificence, so needless to say I'm in AWE, again...I'd say I'm terribly sorry to see this mini collection go ('cause I am) but it's not necessary, somehow you're gone WOW us all over again with your next set!

@Lorraine: Many thanks, Lorraine. Your comment is so very uplifting. And by the way, I used your directions to fix and re-post yesterday's image without losing a comment. So thanks again.
Love the old knarled pine tree. Looks like it has been there for years and it certainly anchors your shot. Thanks for "taking us with you" to this romantic setting. It is truly a beautiful place and you have captured it as only you can. Great work Michael.

@Marion: Many thanks, Marion. Pine trees in Italy seem to have their lower branches chopped off so that they will grow out at the top like a giant umbrella.
Talk about deliciously alluring:-) Love how you capture this through the tree with such character.
