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.

This was the original shot taken with the Blackberry

Out of all the new shots I perfer this B&W the most

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

      I love the composition of No 8 - the "wound" on the tree , the lines of the trees....just perfect!

      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.

      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: [i]"One should photograph objects not only for what they are, but for what else they are".[/i]
      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.

      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!
