I too really like this landscape, very strong and emotive. I generally don't care for strong color in duotones but surprise myself by liking it in this image. "a stand of trees" is a nice strong title for this photo. -Michael

Thanks Lonnit and Jeannie! I will check out the tilt and change the title.

Lee, beautiful photo. I don't mind the green either. Actually, I think it adds to the marshiness of the picture. :)

Personally, I don't think it is necessarily to have the "with ducks" in the title because the trees are really what stand out. Get it, stand?! hahaha I think "stand of trees" is very clever. -- Jeannie (jburly)

I'm fine with the green, but is that horizon tilted a bit? ~ Lonnit

Thanks Pedro. I thought the green added, well a little green to the shot. theFly

WAW... excellent lighting... would prefer it in BW, though...

Thanks Traveller. First time I have gone green. Tried to chase these ducks, but did not bring the right lens and they were too fast. 8-) theFly

This is very nice, Lee, evocative and full of darkling emotions. Generally I don't like colorations to...convey anything, the subject should be what the subject is, (imho).

But this really works for me. Not exactly lovely, but a very good image. Thanks, Traveller
