[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
close-up of freshly cut tree rings.
After December's windstorms on Vancouver Island, the locals kept busy with chainsaws clearing roads and hiking trails of fallen trees.
From this angle and with this lighting gradient, the rings resemble rippling water, our solar system, or perhaps a diagram of electron shells around a nucleus.

Hi John

This is an interesting subject matter and the tree looks to be pretty big with the background (and tree undoubtedly) spreading off the back of the frame.

I think that using a wider depth of field would have given the view an idea of how far these rings actually went out from the core of the tree (I was thinking of around another 6 odd rings being in focus). I also found the darker corner bottom right to be a bit distracting especially since it was so close to the core.
