Quaking Aspens??

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 5 January 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Are these quaking aspens lining Gillett Street, creating a nice overhead canopy? No....just a little negative filtering applied to these fine maple trees and to these fine maple trees as well. It's hard to believe how long ago that photo in the second link was taken (Fall 2007). It was only the 14th photo posted on this blog and this weekend I'll be hitting 600.

The snow in the original photo, captured December 4, 2010, seemed to "blend" this winterscape, not revealing much detail in the canopies of the trees.

Genial use of negative filter, I agree. That's probably the way the snow is looking at us. :)

Congratulations on that amazing photo milestone, and I wish you many more. Funny thing about negative filtering : I like it when others do it, and it never suits me when I use my own images! Vicarious living has its benefits!

@Rick: I know exactly what you mean. I felt the same way about B & W processing. I'm starting to turn that corner, though. ;-)

Charles Dastodd from Chicago, United States
