What a lovely post...The image has beautiful contrasting tones...a terrific composition with that tree standing at the centre of attraction! .. .. Not too sure of the frame though!...

Sorrry for making this comparison. A woman can't be half pregnant. Although it's a common saying, one can't be half dead as well, but your image shows the contrary. Therefore I think it's a good oxymoron and a good entry for the contest. Wish you success with it Marietha.

Excellent shot Marietha! I agree with the second half of Corngrowth's comment in that it makes a serious contender for the contest!

Just a few more seasons of spreading seeds around and I'm sure that the saplings will begin to take over where this one is leaving off. Great shot of a very good oxymoron that only Mother Nature could think up...quick eye! Good luck in the contest.

We donít make art to show someone what something looks like. All this requires is eyes (or a lens). Art is supposed to have meaning, emotion, power, or magic. Alan & Mario "FourThirds"
