This shot was taken in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, May, 2008. I saw this lonely dead tree standing there among trees of every green color in the universe. Friday, I was looking at old files and wondered delete or keep this tree image. Perhaps if I worked with the picture, the ordinary could become extraordinary. So the process began. I cropped out everything, but the tree. Then I changed it from color to sepia. I didn’t think it popped enough. So, then I tried using different colors for a background and discovered that now it had the desired effect. Here is the finished result.
