Experimenting with a lighter print, saving ink ;o)



  1. To me it seems that you got the tonal balance right and it particularly suits ‘Avalon’! Making sense of treescapes from within a wood is always difficult but here the large foreground branch allows the contrasts of straight and curved, and twisted, to interact effectively. There is a nice sense of a slightly mystical place.

    This is something that you can do there that one couldn’t do in a British wood in the same way.

  2. This gets a good sense of the wood across. The use of an internal L frame creates a picture out of randomness – which the darker diagonal exploits well.

  3. I’ll go with John’s first paragraph — doubt I could come up with my own that would state it any better. I like the lightness of this and curious about any post processing.

  4. The strong curve works well. The light tones suggest a sunny clearing, or quite thin cover but the mass of trees belies that. That is a bit of visual tension for me but the overall effect is pleasing.

  5. I like the tonality – I’ve been looking at some nice prints recently and am repeatedly struck by the lightness of tone employed – and the sense of the tangled web of the wood, which the two dominant branches bring some sense of order to. I’d really like to be able to see through o the back of the scene, which I think would probably work better in print form.

  6. I was wondering if the tone has helped simplify the image? I find woodland scenes difficult to keep simple.
    The background has separated away well.

  7. The lighter treatment gives this a volcanic result. The darker branches give plenty of support from the bottom to this. Well seen…and well chosen form of presentation.
