[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this picture on a whim... I just thought it might be neat to take a macro shot right at the end of a long branch, that would show some perspective. I couldn't believe how well the picture turned out! I didn't edit the colors at all, just lowered the brightness a tad. I'm so happy with this picture!

Hi Brian,
I have a similar shot from a pine forest in Bhutan, so I know where you're coming from with this. I like it, although I think the colour is off. If you change master hue to -62, master saturation to +28 and levels (input levels) to 0, 0.82, 255 I think it improves the colour.

I love the depth you've given this with the shallow DOF, nice image and nicely framed.

Hi Brain,
Lovely photo with a great depth. I do feel the colors need a little adjustment, but then, I didn't see the tree and my monitor is different then yours. I do like the tight crop of this photo.
