I posted the first birch shot within weeks of joining PB, it was the shot that made me decide to get a real camera soon. I said then that I would re-visit that area with the new camera and post them to compare, I had envisioned the re-post to be far better than the first shot. I have gone 3 times now and have decided I am not going again, so I am posting what I have. This post is not what I had envisioned, instead of one spectacular shot, I posted a few ok ones.

lookagain What I see in the camera as opposed to Blackberry shots is truer color, better clarity, and nice depth of field. #6 is best for me....great focus and the falling snow adds such a mood!! Your birches look very much like our aspen....beautiful trees both!

SADHYA Roger, there are some people who see a Birch tree, take out their camera and take a shot and say, here is a picture of a Birch Tree. There are other people who see that there is more to it than that, and who can spend years of their lives exploring the Birchfullness of a Birch wood.
I came across a quotation this morning, which fits very well I think. It is by Minor White: "One should photograph objects not only for what they are, but for what else they are".
I think this sort of exploration is so important in developing as a photographer (or an artist).
I have done a post today which illustrates this sort of exploration (or obsession!)
You are doing really great Roger.

EloiseMurray Very good idea! I like the 6th shot :)

liveandletlive Re: your next post. I love 2 and 3. And stop feeling bad that you don't have the time to look at people's posts. You have nothing to feel bad about.

mystic1 Thats a great capture , I need to check out my android camera and see what I come up with since it seems like I have had no time for fun with my new camera :-)

Eiram I love the composition of No 8 - the "wound" on the tree , the lines of the trees....just perfect!
Eiram · 2011-04-22: 15:09
????? These trees are great for their "skin" and colour...
I like them. Also the photographer Wolfe isin love with them.
Great set, Roger :)

Andarta I think these are fantastic shots, and you can definitely see the difference between your original and the new shots :-)
