Charlotte suggested a wider white border, so I've uploaded a variant. Can't decide which looks better. Thoughts, anyone?

Like the texture, Alan, almost has 'foil' effect (not sure you'll like that analogy though Wink).

(white border added, cheers Grin)

The chaos of the forest....not easy to capture the beauty or isolate a decent composition, but you have done both here Alan. I like this very much. The square crop is perfect, but I agree with Dave....it's crying out for a generous white border Wink

Hi Charlotte. Thanks, I might think about the wider border. ( Dave's actually referring to a border I suggested for one of his image variants, uploaded today Smile )

Those leaves look as if they've been dusted by silver. Superb. The reason I like the wider border is that the image is slightly larger/nearer in V2.

I was thinking more of a good couple of inches thick.....this one, for me, is neither here nor there so I can see why you are struggling with it....go on Alan, give it some welly! Wink

Certainly not. The very idea. I bet you put salt and vinegar on your takeaway curry too.

Dabbled and Impressionistic with gorgeous muted colours. Love the variety in the leaves, the larger foreground with the smaller distant ones acting as a backdrop and then the simpler brown foreground leaves. A lot going on, held together with the strong framework of the branches providing a good structure.

Lovely muted Autumn colours and the sturdy spreading branches of the ?Beech tree, great image. To me the wider white border detracts and draws myattention away from the image, I prefer the narrow one.

That was pretty much my thinking Nigel Smile, though I think the slightly wider border is OK too. Cheers mate.

By the way, your butterfly search was spot-on... that was definitely it! Smile

Pleased to get that species right, I just realised that had I looked at your title, I would have known what species this tree was GrinGrinBlush, it is Friday afternoon!

A different image from the usual deep rich autumnal colours. Like the broad white border Wink

Agree with Dave and Charlotte, if you have the software try a solarisation filter, I think you mat be pleased with the result! Great work Alan
