Walking in Wissahickon Park this morning, with a still lasting snow dusting from last night, there was one tree with remarkably textured bark, and a bit of snow. I thought that abstracting it might make a nice photo.

This is a remarkable photo indeed !! Great capture - and V1 is tops for me !!
A well seen abstract and in the absence of side lighting (be it natural or off camera flash), the snow really helps display the textures. Possibly just lacks a focal point for the eye to rest on.
V1 is best, but the bark doesn't fully stand up on it's own. You need a subject to act as focal point. The other possibility was much closer on a tighter area and pin sharp, but then I'm not a texture/pattern fan.
It is version 1 for me too. And I think the whole image is the subject I don't need a focal point. The texture and the pattern is it.
It is a great capture of a remarkable piece of bark but as it has been stated before there is no focal point to the image.
At first glance I thought this was your 'All Bran' at breakfast time lol.
having read then description is is truly an amazing piece of tree bark. However as has been said .............focal point.
I knew that there was no focal point, but I felt that the bark itself was so remarkable that it could be the subject, and was worth recording. Thanks for the feedback. I like V1 the best also.
Good abstract. Great capture, you have a good eye. V! for me. Like Frank I was thinking of breakfast cereal before I read your description!
I have been surprised. Of the photos I have presented in my short time with iPhotozine, I think this one has brought on the most comments...and not all agreeing. Thanks, everyone, for your input.
v1 for me - love the colour. It works well for me without a focal point as it is such a wonderful texture - if anything the focus is where the bark meets the snow.
... unusual photo ... great eye ...
