What a brilliant tree and what a magnificent capture. I just love the overall effect of this image and while I like the IR shot, would love to see this tree in full colour.

I'll probably go back there soon - spring is beginning to green up here in Texas, so I hope a color shot will show a very different sort of feeling.

Very good capture(s), Steven, with the young person at the LHS on the bough. There is also an odd sort of mood to the image - partly to do with the lighting, but partly with working out what is going on - a band in rehearsal on the RHS?

Great Stuff

Thank you David. You are correct that there is some ambiguity, and this time I wasn't aiming for that! This was located off to the side of a large arts/crafts fair that was crowded and bustling just out of frame to the right. I liked the child off in her own peaceful little world vs the event and the crowd only implied by the bandstand and small audience. I considered P'shopping the speakers out because they have too much visual weight, but I decided the contrast with the open space on the other side of the tree was acceptable.

It is an amazing tree that I will certainly go back to shoot again.

Gr8 work, with 2 shots panorama I assume it needed more efforts but the outcome is a good eye-catcher.
Thnx for sharing,

And another Work (by You) I could stare for hours!
This is just amazing shot (and in so many ways)! I love how You cropped that tree and divided this shot (with 'the child and the nature' and 'the adults and the city' kinda way and the tree dividing and combining those).
(This is kinda like reading manga- from right to left. I'd actually like to see this turned around too, with that guy looking 'to the future' where the kid is, but guess that this is better and more effective just as this!)

Thank you, friend. This is a two shot panorama - grabbed on the fly, on an overcast, late afternoon, using a fence to rest the camera on, for exposures that were around 1/20sec. I am myself amazed that it came out so well. I appreciate your interpretation- I hadn't gotten that far in my thinking.

This is at Cherrywood Elementary School, Austin, TX. But seriously, you had to be there.
