Beautiful composition showing this old fallen tree by Curlew Creek. I wonder how it got its name? I bet its a nice hiding place for mammals and birds. Beautiful tones of grey/brown with the splashes of green. A beautiful wilderness!
Many thanks and kind regards, Ulla

At first look rather regular subject. But it is only first and blind look. I like this scene so much and more like the quality of the picture. It is really three-dimensional image with surprising transparency, exactness of details, amazing exposure and lights and wonderful delicate colour palette of dry vegetation and old tree. Bravo, my dear skill friend. Thanks a lot for this high art work.

great composition, Bob, I love the branches crossing the frame and giving a nice perspective to the picture. The colours blend magnificently and the touch of green grass at the foreground gives us an idea of what it really looks like in this creek with all the nuances of shades and colours. So many nice details, the bushes look fluffly! Thank you!

I was looking for the creek - good thing I read your wonderful notes! There is something fascinating about this dead tree. Wonderful how it stretches all across the frame. The colors are excellent - the browns, grays, and splash of green. Superb composition.
Great fine detail. Well processed.
What I find interesting about this image, and many of yours, is that so many would look well as BW images.

This tree lostmany branches before losing the final battle. This is documented by the zigzag of the upper branches. This is a very interesting composition my friend thanks for sharing it.

As usual a well thought out composition, using the frame to the full. Great contrast of forms, plus well handled exposure.

I would call this picture "restless". The eye does not know where to stop, where to concentrate and pans from left to right and from right to left. The background is too vivid and its vertical lines clash with the lines of the foreground.
The positive aspect of this picture is the atmosphere it generates. It's not what one would commonly call a beautiful section of landscape, but it's captivating because of the wilderness and the untouched nature. And once again, your notes are excellent, very pleasant to read.

An interesting shot, this is a very good capture of a natural progression of the life cycle.
Well focused with sharp detail.

A good capture showing the effect of water when the ice melts. A nature's powerful force which has the ability to cut rocks. Excellent picture story of the after effects of the nature's force. Thanks a lot for sharing.

You note has a lot of information. The branches of the fallen tree are creating different types of line which are an asset to the composition. The bush and the other trees are a giving a good background. The subject is well framed. have a nice day.
