Hello Snemann,

Amazing shot it almost look like the branches from the tree arrange the clouds. Is this the way you took the picture or did you do so editingon the blue coloring? Anyway it is a wonderful picture.

Cheers Erik

Snemann on November 4, 2007

Thank you erik. I have to admit that the blue colour is thanks to Photoshop, but I thought it important to show the cloud formations in a better way than in the naturally coloured picture. The really look like they emanate from the tree, don't they.

With some imagination you could even see it the other way round. Like someone took the tree and used it as a giant paintbrush to paint a perfect sky.

hi snemann,

thanks for entering the contest! when you get a chance, please cast your vote for up to 5 entrants right in the contest forum thread where you posted your photo. see rule #4 for details.

also, please re-read (i trust you read all the rules once already ;) rules #5/6 about the counting process, according to which all contestants are expected to play a small part in counting, unless they have a good excuse and cannot attend to their duty when the time comes (from the 22nd to the 24th) which i've been told is Easter weekend (saturday - monday)! if you require just a couple days after the 24th, then it is OK.

thanks again and good luck! :) cheers, brian
