Tree Stump by Gunter Haibach

May 2020 - Tree Stump

About the Image(s)

This picture was taken in an area that had some tree removal happening (just down the block from my house - as our parks/recreations area are all closed due to the virus). What caught my eye, was what looked like a tree formed by the cracks and colour of the stump. Thought it was kind of neat - a tree inside a tree, sort of.
Taken with my Olympus E-M1, 1/30s, f5.6, ISO200, 40mm lens, hand-held. Post processing in RAW Conversion, and Elements.

The first thing that struck me (while looking at the thumbnail) was the "tree" created by the cracks in the log. I was drawn to the black tree trunk crowned by the golden leaves. This "creation" drew me in like a magnet. I think you have a great eye to see this and your processing really brought out the detail. I also like the way the entire cross section of the log almost looks like a leaf. So the end result is a tree within a leaf. Most unique and interesting.

One of the best images I have seen this month.   Posted: 05/13/2020 08:24:17

Good idea. Great detail, color and texture. It's neat that you found something inside a common image.   Posted: 05/17/2020 19:17:13

Looking beyond the simplicity of this sliced log is a gift and brings the image to life. The detail, texture of the wood and the newly sawn timber colours make this an interesting image.   Posted: 05/26/2020 21:36:29

Well seen, Gunter. How often do we stop and really look? Nice texture, lovely, warm color. Glad that you desaturated the others.   Posted: 05/26/2020 23:55:50
