This was taken about 4 years ago but I couldn't get it right in post processing. I think I'm finally happy with this version.
Thank you for looking. Maria

I don't know how you arrived at this result but I think it is spectacularly effective. The tree fades in and out of the background and seems determined to take over the whole picture.
Love it.

Thanks Eric Smile
I had to look it up to see how I did it - used Simple Grunge (OnOne) preset in Lightroom 5, then changed some of the settings to my preference, and added a bit more clarity to the foreground.

Thank you for taking the time to comment.

I think the tricky thing with the more extreme sorts of processing is knowing when you've got it right. The further you move from the straight photograph the more you need an artistic eye and the confidence to know where to stop. This intriguing image would work wonderfully well as a print on the wall, holding the interest in a way that straight photographs rarely do.
Many thanks for your visit to my portfolio and all your comments.
